Motivation

7 Oct

Charles Handy is the writer on business I most admire: he has a heart. Read (or listen to) his four stories as delivered to the Dubrovnik Leadership Forum. "Success is not just something about money." (Via LeverWealth).

A smart colleague of mine yesterday sought my motivation for working in education. It’s not fame, or wealth (obviously). It’s that I have a need to be right (but, I hope, the humility to know that I’m often wrong). I feel vindicated when my students achieve surprising things and when my lessons provide them with guidance for the future.
