Meet the Best ~ 27: Daniel H. Pink

"Staying focused on your values is the secret to making
smart choices.  Ask us how.  Your decisions matter."

Your Weekly StressTip

What would your life be like if you had a personal mentor
to guide you on a daily, weekly and monthly basis -- on
information products of your choosing?

Certainly your life is worth investing in yourself.

Here is a mentor who has recently touched our lives and
we are pleased to share him with you in this entry of
Meet the Best.

Introducing with appreciation and gratitude this month's
"meet the best" mentor Daniel H. Pink.

Daniel H. Pink came into our lives when we wanted to learn
more about how-to rethink motivation in every aspect of
our life.

Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us is a
book about "a new approach to motivation" -- being
motivated with less distress.

Here are few excerpts for your consideration...

"Type I's are made, not born.  Although the world is
awash in extrinsic motivators, there's alot we can do
to bring more autonomy, mastery, and purpose into
our work and life.  ...
" [p. 153]

"Whether you're the CEO or the new intern, you can
help create engaging, productive workplaces that
foster Type I behavior. begin pulling your
organization out of the past and into the brighter
world of Motivation 3.0.
" [p. 162]

"All kids start out as curious, self-directed Type I's.
  ...more of them end up as disengaged, compliant
Type X's.  If we want to equip young lead
satisfying lives--we need to break Motivation 2.0's
grip on education and parenting.  ...We're bribing
students into compliance instead of challenging
them into engagement.  ...If we want to raise Type I
kids, at school and at home, we need to help them
move toward autonomy, mastery, and purpose.  ...
[pp. 174-175]
