Nützliche Unterscheidungen pt. 44 (The Fuel Edition)

Eine weitere ganze Reihe von zumindest pragmatisch recht nützlichen Unterscheidungen kommt wieder einmal von Seth Godin und unterscheidet die Arten an Treibstoff , die die eigene Maschinerie betreiben:

  • Avoidance of shame (do this work or you’ll be seen as a fraud/loser/outcast)
  • Becoming a better version of yourself
  • Big dreams (because you can see it/feel it/taste it)
  • Catastrophe (or the world as we know it will end)
  • Competition (someone is gaining on you)
  • Compliance (the boss/contract says I have to, and even better, there’s a deadline)
  • Connection (because others will join in)
  • Creative itch (the voice inside of you wants to be expressed)
  • Dissatisfaction (because it’s not good enough as it is)
  • Engineer (because there’s a problem to be solved)
  • Fame (imagining life is better on the other side)
  • Generosity (because it’s a chance to contribute)
  • It’s a living (pay the writer)
  • Peer pressure (the reunion is coming up)
  • Possibility (because we can, and it’ll be neat to see how it works in the world)
  • Professionalism (because it’s what we do)
  • Revenge (you’ll show the naysayers)
  • Selection (to get in, win the prize, be chosen)
  • Unhappiness (because the only glimmer of happiness comes from the next win, after all, we’re not good enough as is)

(abt: draw the distinction!)
