Thank you for this gift! My first MA involved research in motivational psychology, and watching Dan Pink has brought back that experience. The above serves as a great reminder that we generally and highly value human development, actualization, and performance. We appreciate one another for it; we enjoy high quality goods and services because of it--i.e., not because we may (or may not be) paid to do great things, but because it is in us to do them, and given appropriate conditions and freedom, we can do them.

Thanks David! I hope this notice, also, all other peacemakers like you and this video will help to transformation of mepeace as well and more.
Even the eternal optimists must be a push through something, especially when it comes to our motivations "make the world a little bit better".
