motivations. why we do things.

15 Nov

In (social) Psych, I learnt** that often, we are motivated to act if something contributes towards one of our future goals or hinders us from achieving it.

So.

I wonder if I was working towards one of my so-called goals or preventing something from hindering it when I did what I did today.

** Perhaps I shouldn’t say learnt per se, more of had it put to me in a deliberate and concise way that I had never bothered to sort out in my head before
