AN INSPIRATIONAL MANIFESTO FOR RE-IGNITING OUR PASSION FOR LIFE AND OUR INNER DRIVE FROM SHARATH JEEVAN, A LEADING EXPERT ON MOTIVATION. ‘An essential guide for re-discovering our motivation and for living more fulfilling lives.’ NIR EYAL, author of Indistractable ‘Intrinsic provides a way out of the malaise many of us have been feeling. Essential reading.’ JONAH BERGER, author of Contagious ‘A thoughtful and inspiring book. Readers should rush to embrace the lessons of Intrinsic.’ DAN HEATH, co-author of Switch We are in a motivational mess today.
Many of us feel like we are going through the motions – as workers, managers, spouses and partners, parents and citizens. We feel jaded and unhappy with the organizations we are part of, whether that’s the company we work for or our child’s school. And some of us feel deeply alienated from the wider societies in which we live, particularly in the face of vast social problems – from climate change to our increasingly ‘winner takes all’ world.
But life doesn’t need to be this way. Motivation thinking holds the key to this promise. Intrinsic uses motivation thinking not just to accurately diagnose these problems, but to find solutions. As a leading expert on motivation, Sharath Jeevan helps us see how we can achieve more lasting fulfilment and success in our work, careers, relationships, parenting, and as citizens.
Jeevan applies the concepts of Purpose (how what we do helps others), Autonomy (our ability to positively change things) and Mastery (our sense of continually getting better) to help us see our motivation in these key life areas in a radically new light.
Jeevan takes us on a journey around the world to find practical and inspirational answers to solving our motivational crisis, harnessing ground-breaking research, from psychology and economics to philosophy and behavioural science.
Intrinsic shows us how we can fall back in love with our lives, and create the lives we want.
