Excellent article - the amount of effort, work and analysis that's gone into creating this content is quite palpable and truly inspirational.

I've also analysed Daniel Pink's superb book Drive and applies some of the learnings to help budding writers (like myself) unlock their inner mojo.

Big takeaway: creativity is painful and the “carrot and stick” approach hinders it. Nurturing and cajoling our intrinsic motivation leads to enhanced output and satisfaction - my article details how.

Feedback appreciated!
