I decided to write a book. Writing relaxes me and it’s something I am fairly good at. Just need to decide what to write. I could write a non-fiction book about the obstacles my family and I go through in having a child with autism. I could write about various areas of psychology and possibly do something in the self-help category. I could also write fiction and do a novel in one of many different genres such as mystery, poetry, horror, thriller, or even romance (Fifty Shades didn’t do too shabby). I’ve been muddling over this for a couple of weeks now, and with my love for writing, you would think that I would have more posts on this blog but I don’t. This baffled me for a bit, then I realized I wasn’t truly motivated. Which leads me to today’s posting.
Categories of Motivation
What motivates people? There are many theories on motivation and I broke them down into three different categories: biological, psychosocial, and biopsychosocial. Most of the many theories on motivation can be listed under these umbrellas. Some psychologists would suggest other categories or umbrellas, but I find these the most suiting.
