Career analyst Dan Pink examines the puzzle of motivation, starting with a fact that social scientists know but most managers don’t: Traditional rewards aren’t always as effective as we think. Listen for illuminating stories — and maybe, a way forward.

Inspiration Series – o2



In this video – that has been around for a few years now – Steve Jobs shares 3 stories from his life. He talks about the importance to believe everything will turn out fine, to follow your intuition & inner voice instead of blindly following the well known paths. About how negative experiences & failures can end up to be the best thing that ever happened to you. And about ‘death’ being the single best invention in life.

If you haven’t seen the video yet, go and watch it – it’s more than worth it!

Don’t loose faith when life hits you in the face. But continue to try to find what you love. Keep looking. Don’t settle. Remembering that you are going to die, is the best way to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Have the courage to follow your heart & intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything is secondary.

Manifesto

Being an urban nomad, my standards are clear.
I want quality. Quality of life.
A well-balanced mix of experiences.
Not the most expensive stuff, only the most interesting.
An unexpected thing from time to time.
Unique experiences without living the same over and over again.
I want design, but not without meaning.
Good food and nice places to hang out.
One day I might sleep in a luxurious design hotel.
The next one on a free couch.
Not one without the other.

Inspiration Series – o1

For those of you who haven’t seen the ‘Last Lecture’, in the series ‘inspirational’, this one couldn’t be left out! If you haven’t seen the video yet, please try to do so. For the South African people amongst us — screw bandwidth! Just watch the video, it’ll give you something more essential than bandwidth in return — the feeling of being alive.
