What Makes Us Feel Good About Work?

What motivates us to work? Contrary to conventional wisdom, it isn't just money. But it's not exactly joy either. It seems that most of us thrive by making constant progress and feeling a sense of purpose. Behavioral economist Dan Ariely presents two eye-opening experiments that reveal our unexpected and nuanced attitudes toward meaning in our work. (Filmed at TEDxRiodelaPlata.)

Many points made are similar or the same to those Fritz Aldrine and I made in 2003 in our book, "Why Work Isn't Working Anymore."  

I commend the Ted presentation to you at this link:
