16 Counterintuitive Ideas About Motivation, Innovation, and Leadership
This manifesto, from NYT best selling author Dan Pink, goes against the grain of much of the advice you may have been given (or dispensed to others) about being successful and happy.
Split into Motivation, Innovation and Leadership, the manifesto encourages you to pay people too much, doubt yourself and give up finding your passion.
My favourite piece of advice is to “establish a department of why”
When you understand what motivates you to act- your “why” then so many other things fall into place and your plans are catalysed by your understanding that the outcome will have some meaning.
As manifestos go it’s quite long, but if you can find the time to delve into some of the ideas Dan presents here, you won’t be disappointed.
