It kept me from thinking about every depressing and weird thing that was going on at that time.”

Daniel H. Pink
“Motivation 1.0 presumed that humans were biological creatures, struggling to obtain our basic needs for food, security and sex.

Motivation 2.0 presumed that humans also responded to rewards and punishments. That worked fine for routine tasks but incompatible with how we organize what we do, how we think about what we do, and how
we do what we do. We need an upgrade.

Motivation 3.0, the upgrade we now need, presumes that humans also have a drive to learn, to create, and to better the world.”
Daniel H. Pink, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us
