What turns you on at work?

Individuals are motivated when they are working towards personally meaningful goals. Attainment of those goals must require activity that is increasingly difficult, but attainable. In other words, people like to be challenged, but they must feel their goals are achievable to stay motivated. This can be accomplished by: · Establishing goals that are personally meaningful · Making those goals possible · Providing feedback on performance · Aligning goals with the individual's self esteem
