Another Stab at Motivation
Nice read! You have an interesting take on teachers and grades. I’ve never thought of the pursuit of fun as a goal although I do think that cultivating the ability to feel pleasure from difficult tasks may be the same thing, which is something I’ve benefited from.
The state of flow comes when you’re sufficiently challenged by your goals and daily activities. Otherwise boredom takes over, so it makes sense that pursuing fun is a good goal, so long as it’s not hedonistic.
