Week 10: Motivation
Think about what motivates you to complete daily tasks and reach life-long goals. Your motives for tasks such as taking out the trash or paying your taxes are probably very different from those related to securing your “dream job” or fulfilling a childhood dream of learning to play the piano. For example, you might be motivated to pay taxes due to fear of being audited, fined, or imprisoned. Conversely, you might be motivated to secure your “dream job” because you believe it will give you a greater purpose in life or because it comes with a higher salary. As illustrated in these examples, motivation can be extrinsic, arising to avoid punishment or gain a reward, or intrinsic, arising from genuine interest in an activity or the pursuit of personal fulfillment. This week, you will explore different theories and types of motivation and consider your own motivations for pursuing a graduate degree. You will also submit your Final Project, which is due on Day 7 of this week. In addition, you will continue to populate the Psychology Theories Template, which is due at the end of Week 11.
