In this episode, Dustin talks with Ayelet Fishbach about her book, Get it Done: Surprising Lessons from the Science of Motivation. You'll discover how to stay motivated, the power of changing our circumstances and the four ingredients for successful behavior change.
Dr. Fishbach cautions we should only set goals after carefully considering whether they're right for us. We talk about targets, why we should use them, why they work and how we can set up effective targets for ourselves and our employees. Ayelet dispels some of the myths about incentives, the difficulties of rewarding certain types of creative work and how to know when we should remove certain incentives or if incentives might actually become harmful to our motivation.
Listeners will hear evidence-based strategies regarding intrinsic motivation and how to make the path to our goals more enjoyable and exciting. Finally, we discuss how ambition impacts the way we monitor our progress towards a powerful goal and how committed we remain to achieving it.
