3 Types Of Motivation

3 Types Of Motivation

  1. Motivation 1.0 - The survival instict: In this situation, the primary things that keep us alive (food, water, shelter) control our actions.
  2. Motivation 2.0 - The stick and the carrot: This system assume workers will have no desire to work unless they are offered an extrinsic reward ( this can mean a punishment too).
  3. Motivation 3.0 - Intrinsic reward: The internal satisfaction we feel from accomplishing something is far more rewarding than stick and carrot motivation.

External Rewards

Rewards usually offer a short-term boost. But the effect wears off, and the negative consequence of them remain: they reduce a person’s longer-term motivation to continue the project.

When money is used as an external reward for some activity, the subjects lose intrinsic interest for the activity.

Extrinsic and Intrinsic Motivation

Extrinsic and Intrinsic Motivation

  • Extrinsic motivation. Extrinsic motivators (a raise, a promotion, a bonus) do work they are usually doing so in the short-term only. If the motivator is taken away, the behavior stops.
  • Intrinsic motivation. It is the desire to do something for the internal satisfaction of it. It’s the joy we get from accomplishing something useful, the satisfaction of a job well done, a sense of purpose, pride, belonging.

Carrots and Sticks: The Seven Deadly Flaws

  • They can extinguish intrinsic motivation.
  • They can diminish performance.
  • They can crush creativity.
  • They can crowd out good behavior.
  • They can encourage cheating, shortcuts, and unethical behavior.
  • They can become addictive.
  • They can foster short-term thinking.

The carrot and stick method does work, but it was created for a very different era and totally different circumstances.

The Two Types Of People: Type X And Type I

  • Type X (Extrinsic): They are driven by external factors such as fame, status, money etc. They can often be highly successful but also troubled by an insatiable appetite for MORE.
  • Type I (Intrinsic): Their motivation comes from within – to accomplish something meaningful. Success is measured by the task itself and not by a reward. Type I’s will usually outperform a Type X in the long run.

Autonomy

Autonomy

It means having a choice in what you do and being-self driven.

People are naturally wired to be-self driven. When they have the freedom to pick what they work on (tasks), when they work on it (time), how they attain it (technique) and who they work with (team), they perform much better due to the sense of autonomy.

Mastery

The assumption of Mastery is that people wish to get better at what they do as long as they care about it.

  • Engagement in the task one is pursuing is key to mastery.
  • To be engaged, you need to reach the state of flow, where goals are clear and feedback is immediate.
  • For flow, the challenge of a task must be just slightly above your level of competence.
  • Set “learning goals” instead of “performance goals”.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
