Living a Motivated Life

A Memoir and Activities

Raymond J. Wlodkowski

What if, as psychologists and adult educators advocate, a person chose a life where his motivation for the work itself determined what he did? Living a Motivated Life: A Memoir and Activities follows the author through forty years, revealing how he selected vocational pursuits guided by his understanding of intrinsic motivation and transformative learning. As a compass for relevant decisions, these ideas gave energy and purpose to how he lived, and an instinct as sure as sight for the future.

Written with nuance, humor, and unpredictability, this story renders how he came to appreciate learning for the pleasure of learning. Facing similar challenges as those of today’s first generation college students, the memoir narrates his unexpected college enrollment, his friendship with an ancient history professor, and his triumphs and travails as teacher, psychologist, human relations specialist, psychotherapist, and adult educator.

This is the first memoir of someone who consciously chose to lead a professional life to experience flow on a daily basis. It is an important step in the integration and evolution of intrinsic motivation theory and transformative learning. But it reaches beyond this outcome, sharing how the author aspired to be better at what he valued and showing how he discovered and extended these ideas to others.

It is not a surprise to hear Marcus say, in Cicero's De legibus 2.14.36, "we have learned from them (that is, the mysteries, meaning the Eleusinian mysteries) the fundamentals of life (principia aitae) and have grasped the basis not only for

Now at the first sign of difficulty you are ready to quit. If you are fatigued by this run-of-the-mill crowd of apathetic mediocrities, what will

The corpse is not reflective of an individual per se , but an access point for ‘rethinking individuality in new terms’ that reflects a ‘point of defiance

that case, however, rather than being the ultimate outcome of the process of un-living, “the conclusive theoretical characterization of the mere something as such” falls entirely outside the phased order, though in such a way that the conclusion can be motivated by any particular phase ( BP 113–14).
