In light of today being Employee Appreciation Day, here’s an interesting video about motivation from Dan Pink, the author of “Drive”, that I found on another BNI chapter’s Facebook page (Network Advantage, in Alabama). It’s not light viewing — a thinking cap is definitely required — but it certainly is interesting and thought-provoking, not to mention fun to watch. And when the author references both Wile E. Coyote AND a Huey Lewis song from “Back to the Future”, how can you go wrong?
What does all this have to do with BNI? Well, as the video says, there are three factors that lead to personal satisfaction in work: autonomy, mastery, and purpose. In other words, being self-directed, being good at what you do, doing things for a reason other than just money. I don’t know about you, but to me this describes small business professionals, and therefore the members of our chapter, to a T! Your thoughts are welcome…
