I would argue most kids don't know what they're passionate about. That's why schools need to create opportunities for children to find them

which is perhaps optimal the more we generate/model/live a community/city ecosystem, and the more we keep from saying/thinking about - shoulds... no?

10 charts on the staggering levels of disengagement in the US workforce . . . (via@HarvardBiz)

More startling, however, is what's happening across industries. While managers and executives are the most engaged, they're apparently not doing a great job engaging others. Particularly troubling are the bottom three sectors — service, transportation, and manufacturing or production.

Gallup research... shows that these managers from hell are creating active disengagement costing the U.S. an estimated $450 billion to $550 billion annually," writes Gallup chairman and CEO Jim Clifton in the report's introduction.

People are motivated, instead, by interesting work, challenge, and increasing responsibility. These intrinsic factors answer people’s deep-seated need for growth and achievement.

How many articles, books, speeches, and workshops have pleaded plaintively, “How do I get an employee to do what I want?”

by using bridgers.. to find the people that already want that..

convince you it's not worth wanting.. mystery vs secret.. desire

In lectures to industry on the problem, I have found that the audiences are usually anxious for quick and practical answers, so I will begin with a straightforward, practical formula for moving people.
What is the simplest, surest, and most direct way of getting someone to do something? Ask? But if the person responds that he or she does not want to do it, then that calls for psychological consultation to determine the reason for such obstinacy. Tell the person? The response shows that he or she does not understand you, and now an expert in communication methods has to be brought in to show you how to get through. Give the person a monetary incentive? I do not need to remind the reader of the complexity and difficulty involved in setting up and administering an incentive system. Show the person? This means a costly training program. We need a simple way.

and now.. have to pay or join to continue reading...
