Career satisfaction, life-work balance, the reality of the changing workplace, and understanding personal goals and priorities has been emotionally draining for many as we surface from the economic crisis.

Recently we've seen books like What's Next Gen X?, the film Lemonade, 37signals's 4 day work week, Frog's latest issue of design mind, and numerous others explore these issues — and on the flip side — companies large and small are constantly looking at new ways to attract talent, and retain it!

In the video above, author Daniel Pink cites 50 years worth of behavioral science research demonstrating that money is only a motivating factor to a point for getting good results.
