People talk about motivation so much it’s annoying. Coaches and speakers talk about it all. the. time. You don’t need another source do you? But here’s a different take…

Two parts to motivation

  1. The actual hype that gives you energy. This is stuff like music that makes you excited to do the task.
  2. The thing you are motivated to go towards. The carrot, the pat on the back, the imagined feelings, all that stuff.

A binary decision

We only do things for two reasons: seek pleasure or avoid pain. That’s it. Every decision. Every single one. Feel free to challenge that.

Avoiding Pain

This podcast is about being motivated by wanting to move away from something in some way. That’s very powerful. Think about that. Sometimes it’s obvious, but sometimes it’s not.
