I'm Not a Horse, I'm a Person

Ran across this piece from Daniel Pink about what motivates us. I’ve found myself lately thinking a lot about what motivates (and what kills motivation in) people and the research behind this “mini-lecture” is interesting. As entrepreneurs, we’ve got to be the master motivator for our teams, because they are typically small and underfunded. Based on the research, the lack of money for salaries isn’t a killer because it appears to be not that important in the grand scheme of motivation.
