really liked it
bookshelves: 2010, vpl, business, psychology
Recommended for: business owners, office workers

I really enjoyed this book because it helped re-affirm that the things that matter to me are actually valuable to business and society.

Beyond a certain threshold money doesn't matter; what matters is that people have autonomy, mastery, and purpose in their work and their lives. While external rewards worked for the mundane tasks of the last few centuries, they are actually counter-productive to success in the 21st century where what we really need is more creativity.

And this book was also great because it devotes a lot of space (the entire 3rd section) to really practical advice on how to get more autonomy, mastery, and purpose in your job/life, whether you're the boss or a lowly cubicle dweller.
