Author Dan Ariely gave an interesting talk on motivation and how to feel good about our work at TEDx Rio de la Plata. Ariely suggests that it isn't money that truly motivates us, but meaning. Ariely believes this is the difference between those that love what they do and those that don’t. Through a series of experiments Ariely shows how much we actually value meaning in our work. No, the talk doesn't specifically mention photography as a career but any savvy business owner knows that wisdom is valuable regardless. If you have trouble staying motivated or get down about your work sometimes, check the video out. Some of his suggestions may help you.
