    I liked the Ted Talk on work motivation. I fully agree that the money is important but many other factors including the feeling of accomplishment, of being part of a productive group, sharing with other workers on a worksite or doing a job toghether. Those are things that can make one feel like getting up in the AM to go to work, whether you are young or old.
