We are driven people, not job descriptions

1,346 views

When our motivation is internalized - comes from ourselves – we become more proactive and way better at solving complex puzzles. For Agile projects, we need people with internalized motivation. Our internalization can be categorized into five levels:
1. External motivation (Forced).
2. Introjected motivation (Pressure).
3. Identified motivation (Social).
4. Integrated motivation (Goals).
5. Intrinsic motivation (Enjoy).
To become one of those ‘motivated individuals’ you need to act based on levels 3-5. To do so I recommend discovering what drives you on those levels.
As humans we make decisions from the inside out. It starts with a gut feeling (your internal drive); which results in specific behavior; which results in a specific action. There are many different ways to discover what drives us internally. I believe the first step in discovering who you are is deciding for yourself how you want to get there.
