RE: #AskLeo - What is your motivation?

in LeoFinance3 months ago

I've thought about motivation while working on Hive projects. Usually, it starts with "I'm creating this because I think something like this needs to exist". This initial inspiration wears off about 6 weeks into the project, and a higher calling is needed.

A few examples of higher calling are "education" and "communication". A project needs to continue because it provides value by broadcasting knowledge.

You are pretty high on Maslows pyramid! As thinking like this, is a sign of higher and more evolved needs!

Thank you for sharing your motivation with us.

Maslow’s pyramid ... never thought about it like that. I am grateful for my circumstances. Self-actualization is something to aspire to.

I try to see how people respond on their surroundings and Maslow can describe well the environment of a person. Most people on this planet are on the first two steps and won't probably climb hgher.

It’s true, there are many forces pushing downward like gravity keeping people at the bottom of the well.

I think cryptocurrency could shift the balance. Like Saifedean Ammous discusses, Bitcoiners shift to low time preference. They prefer to do activities with long-term, intrinsic rewards. This happens knowing wealth will grow over time.

Did not have Saifedean Ammous under my radar. Thank you for this tip!

His book “The Bitcoin Standard” is a must read!

Thanks for it! Will need to read it!
