... motivation filtered through opportunity.
Recently I read this quote in an interesting interview/discussion betwee Clay Shirky and Daniel Pink. I've been thinking about this quote ever since. Is this true? Why am I thinking about this quote so much? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this quote. Its context can be found in the article, of course.
Another nice quote from the article that was an eye opener to me is:
I think our nature is to be active and engaged. I’ve never seen a 2-year-old or a 4-year-old who’s not active and engaged.
As a father of kids and as an old kid, I know this is true...
