What motivates us?

January 26, 2012

Frederick Herzberg  asserted that the powerful motivator in our lives isn’t money; it’s the opportunity to learn, grow in responsibilities, contribute to others, and be recognized for achievements – as shared by Clayton Christensen with HBS graduating class 2010.

He also said “Management is the most noble of professions if it’s practiced well. No other occupation offers as many ways to help others learn and grow, take responsibility and be recognized for achievement, and contribute to the success of a team. More and more MBA students come to school thinking that a career in business means buying, selling, and investing in companies. That’s unfortunate. Doing deals doesn’t yield the deep rewards that come from building up people.”

Success… according to Emerson

January 22, 2012

Ralph Waldo Emerson defined success as:

  • To laugh often and much
  • to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children
  • to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends
  • to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others
  • to leave the world a bit better
  • whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition
  • to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived.

This is to have succeeded.
