The Motivated Brain & Summer Social

The ice storm threw us all for a loop this year but to our surprise Toronto’s weather agreed to warm up in time for the annual TODN Summer Social.

The night was filled with some aha moments, warm laughter and energized discussion amongst members. We were lucky to have Helle Bundgaard, author of The Motivated Brain, walk us through some key insights around human behaviour and motivation. She starting off with a well received analogy: our brain is our hardware and our own personal story develops our software, we need to learn to become a superuser of our own brain.

We learned about energy drainers and tied them in with our own personal expectations and needs. Helle reminded us of the differences between short term and long term motivation, and of course, that we cannot motivate other people if they are not motivated to be motivated!

And with that, I can say I am now feeling quite motivated find my motivation...
