What Motivates You?Good, bad, wrong, right?
I wondered why. I asked myself that question, and I realized I wasn't really sure. I used to think it was all about interpersonal relationships, dominance, and recognition. Or, at least that's what I wanted to believe. But no not really. Then I thought, ok maybe I just happen to like the action itself. Maybe I get pleasure from behaving as I do. Hmm.. it just wasn't enough to be motivation for me. I just don't think that far ahead. The promise of pleasure isn't enough for me to trouble myself to do something. I do things when I know I have to. When I know it would make life substantially terrible to not finish. But I just can't seem to figure out anything that consistently explains when or why I act when I don't have to. I don't really do it often, but when I do it's generally to understand something or for no real reason that I can identify.
So I'm just wondering. Does anyone else know... What motivates you?
