A captivating animation of Dan Pink’s discussion of motivation in which he explains why money alone is not a sufficient motivator for more cerebral. as opposed to manual, tasks. While Pink fails to include artists in his discussion – relying instead upon highly skilled/educated programmers and the like – I believe artists clearly fall into this category. This explains why so many creatives remain true to their art even in the face of financial ruin. Therefore, money alone is insufficient to drive an artist for any extended period of time; a greater purpose of some sort must exist to truly motivate a creative.
What’s your motivator?
