This TED presentation from last year has made the rounds before, but it’s still relevant and important (and compelling). It’s what we all know, but which our cultural models won’t support — people do more and better when they’re doing something they want to do, are trying to get better at it, and are given the leeway to do it how they see fit.

This presentation seems especially appropriate for bloggers — after all, we’re doing this because we want to. Have a great Friday!
