“Live neither in the past nor in the future, but let each day’s work absorb all your interest, energy and enthusiasm.”
– Sir William Osler, physician and founding professor of John Hopkins Hospital

In his book Drive, Daniel Pink describes three predominant qualities to life that drive all of us. They include:
- Autonomy, or the ability to influence our world.
- Mastery, or the capacity to grow and improve our skills and abilities.
- Purpose, or a sense of meaning – knowing that our daily efforts are making a difference to our own lives and the lives of others.
Using the three qualities above as a framework for a driven life, how do you plan to focus your interest, energy and enthusiasm today?
