|I've been in transition for a while, leaving a big enterprise and moving towards more independent work through own consulting business.|
In the process I reflected a lot and one of the important topics I am trying to understand is about underlying motivations for my actions.
I can see what is going on in my head, that I tend to materialise some image of my future self, create value for the family and the environment I live in, position myself good for the future-needed skills, have joy in what I do, have more freedom to decide of my future direction ... there are many different triggers of motivation for my actions, but from time to time they seem random and misaligned.
As said, I can see what is going on in my head but I was curios about how others interpret and manage their motivations which trigger their actions.
Would be happy to have some insights into your heads if you may allow :)
