Question #2

I love Daniel Pink's work!  The man knows motivation.  Not in a Zig Ziglar way, but in a way that can make a huge impact in classrooms.  Educators are always trying to find the keys to motivating kids.  A lot of time is spent discussing the students that are seemingly unmotivated to do the assigned work.  Sometimes, too many of these conversations demotivate the teacher.  This has me thinking about Question #2 from Pink.

Was I better today than I was yesterday?

Pink says each one of us should ask ourselves this question each night before our heads hit our pillows.  I'm going to try to remember this for awhile.  Of course, a meaningful answer to this question depends a lot on Question #1.  You can see his Two Question video here.
