Dear Why Team member,
I hope this weeks message finds you feeling tremendous and leveraging your most profound WHY to live a more fulfilling life that serves and positively impacts others in your life.
How do we know we’re on the right path?
Keep in mind we build our path and as long as we’re having fun, keep our head high but still bend-down to pick up the pennies life puts in our path with gratitude and care for others, we must be on the right path.
This week I was reminded of a previous Why Team Weekly covering the work of author Daniel Pink.
As many of you know, Mr. Pink writes bestselling books about business, work, and behavior. I have mentioned how his book, “Drive,” where he uses 50 years of behavioral science to illustrate how to overturn the conventional wisdom about human motivation and offer a more effective path to high performance, has added to the long arc of my public speaking on what people believe shapes what they do.
Here is a wonderful video where Mr. Pink was speaking to the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6XAPnuFjJc) whose mission is to enrich society through ideas and action, about his work in Drive. It is well worth the time, and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.
As in his book, the video of Daniel Pink's speech shows us that "The science shows that the secret to high performance isn't our biological drive or our reward-and-punishment drive, but our third drive - our deep-seated desire to direct our own lives, to extend and expand our abilities, and to live a life of purpose."
With your new and expanded ways to serve, make it a great week.
