Why We Do What We Do

I don’t profess to have the answer for that, particularly how it relates to us all individually, but I do the work concerned to try and better understand what drives my personal beliefs and behaviours.

In looking at work in/around either performance or productivity (sometimes both), there are several major drivers when it comes to human behaviour:

- Self-interest: How does it serve the person?

- Status: How does it improve their standing?

- Convenience: What is the path of least resistance?

- Signalling: What does it signal to others?

- Social norms: How does it help them fit in?

Although I am not a fan of standardisations or generalisation, any/all of these are likely to be considerations or questions that you have asked regarding better understanding your situation, or seeking to change or improve it.
