MVP: Just because you believe a goal is valuable doesn’t mean that others do!
Motivation = Value/effort
Imaging you are walking out of a store and you see a $100 bill laying on the ground three steps away from you.
M=$100/3 steps ($33/step)
But what if it was a $1 bill and it was 20 steps away?
M=$1/20 steps ($.05/step)
In these examples, the difference in motivation is easy to understand.
However, what if we don’t agree on how much the V (value) is worth?
The things I value may not be the same as what you value.
If I assume we see equal value in a given endeavor, I am making a mistake.
Chance for bonus points! Today’s subject line references something specific. Email me the answer if you know it. Just for fun because it is Friday 🤣
Today’s intention: Think about someone who is unmotivated to do something you think is important. Let go of judgment and become an economist. How might their view of the value, or lack thereof, be different from yours?
