Hi Jeff Let me start out by saying I really do enjoy reading codinghorror, and I have been a keen follower for a while. This particular entry is very interesting, but if you look at the holistic nature of human beings and the environments in which they exist, various factors go into motivating individuals. If an individual has grown up in an economically unstable background, finds a job that helps them just break even every month, that individual would be more motivated by income, i.e. the more they earn the more motivated they would be. But this is transient because as that individual is able to bed down various materialistic needs, he/she will be looking to fore fill other needs. Please have a look at “Maslow's hierarchy of needs”, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow%27s_hierarchy_of_needs, look at the diagram critically; the aspect of motivation your blog refers to is the upper most section “Self-actualization” and once an individual is at this level, he/she will only then “….yearn for the vast and endless sea, just like we do.” Would interesting to know your opinions on this.
