Audiobook Review: Drive by Daniel Pink
Drive studies what motivates people, but less in a weight-loss mode, and more of an employer-looking-to-get-more-out-of-employees mode. What Daniel Pink says DOES make sense. Basically, people are motivated by more than just money.
- We're motivated by autonomy - being able to do things on our own.
- We're motivated by mastery - continually doing better and better at something until we reach perfection - which we never will. There is always room for improvement.
- We're motivated by purpose - knowing that we're doing something good - for the betterment of ourselves & others.
If you're looking for the drive to lose those last few pounds - keep looking. His methods work, but it's nothing you can apply to keep yourself from eating when you want to stop.
Have YOU found a way to stay motivated to get to your goal weight? Is there a Holy Grail of weight management book out there? What books or other motivators have you found to be the most & least helpful?
