TOPIC: Motivation

This week, Dan and Merlin talk about their upcoming 5by5 at the Movies episode on Glengarry Glen Ross, which segues naturally into a discussion of the many aspects of motivation.

What happens when our motivation starts better accounting for how other people are motivated?

Get them to sign on the line which is dotted.
