    I recall suggesting in the early 90s that our art school should have an "everyone do non curriculum random art thing that you are into" day.

    It was not well received.

    That explains a lot about MassiveBlack, The Art Department, and this site actually. Great find.

    It can take very little to motivate one. I was praised for a good job this week and someone else chimed in that I was the only one who could have done it. Then I got the same from from another partner. It sure makes makes me want to work hard next week and I will. Working the jobs from hell and getting them sorted gives me satisfaction in one way, but it's always nice to know when your work is appreciated.

    Heard last week that one lady at a client gave in her notice because boss treated her like shit. Twenty years it took and he was baffled. Money sure isn't the motivation; sure it helps but getting the recognition of having done well is almost (not quite) priceless.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Thanks for the link to TED. I've never heard of it.

    As somebody who's never really been motivated by external factors, none of this seemed especially surprising, but I've been mulling over the same things for a while now (and I'm a self-righteous asshole/adhere to various philosophical ideals which suggest we already know things, we just haven't harnessed them or understood them yet), so that may explain it.

    I'd really love to see this applied to education (it already has, but in American public schools...) It probably works better in a business setting, though.

    Great find on this video, it really spoke to me and makes perfect sense. I'm trying to tell friends & family that it doesn't matter how much I make at my job, that it's not making me happy, but they just don't understand. For them, "more money" = "better job", regardless of what the job consists of.

    Wow, thank you very much for this! Great find.

    This actually explains quite a few things - as the author said. Linux, open source projects, etc. It also explains how modders of games often come up with equal, if not better stuff than the game developers ever did (I'm looking at you, Bethesda (Oblivion and Fallout 3 Mods, for example)).

    I just might have to send this to my old economics teacher. Wonder what he'll have to say about this.

    "Never regret thy fall from grace, O' spirit of Icarian flight, for the greatest tragedy of them all to face, is to never feel the burning bright"
    Believe my lies, for I tell the truth about them. Or would you rather me lie about telling the truth?

    Money is important up to the point that you have your basic needs. Roof over your head, food, that kind of stuff. After that point it becomes important only because it enables you to do things.
    If you have a high paying job that you don't like and you use your money to enjoy your spare time you do things wrong.
    Why? Because you need to spend both time and money for your enjoyment.
    If you have a lower paying job you like you save the money and time you would have spend with the job you don't like.

    But this is not what people learn. They learn that money matters. But they don't learn why it matters. So to them more money = better job.
