Creativity Quote of the Day.

...autonomy, complexity, and a connection between effort and reward are ... the three qualities that work has to have if it is to be satisfying.

If I offered you a choice between being an architect for $75,000 a year and work­ing in a tollbooth every day for the rest of your life for $100,000 a year, which would you take? I'm guessing the former, because there is complexity, autonomy, and a relationship between effort and reward in doing creative work, and that's worth more to most of us than money.
