For many of us, education is something we’ve always known. We started in kindergarten, maybe preschool, and continued through college. We know a lot about life inside the classroom and little about life outside of it. But have we really ever thought about about our most basic motivations to become educated? People who are intrinsically motivated tend to receive the most value from their education because they are motivated to learn by internal factors like curiosity and seek rewards like satisfaction and knowledge, rather than money or status. Additionally, those who are intrinsically motivated tend to find and follow their passions, which will likely result in an extremely worthwhile career. Be completely honest with yourself when reflecting our your most basic motivation to receive an education; if it’s money, accept that, but try to also reflect on what might intrinsically motivate you. Discovering this could lead to a more enlightened and meaningful life.
