Motivate yourself with visions, goals and willpower | Hugo Kehr | TEDxTUM

  • Опубликовано: 9 фев 2017
  • Why do we sometimes have a hard time reaching our goals? What to do when we're about to give in to temptation? How can we achieve what we set out to do without feeling like we have to convince ourselves to get to work? The key is motivation: with his straightforward 3-component model, Hugo Kehr teaches us how to check what drives us to pursue a particular goal, and how to find appropriate support to reach it while feeling happy.
    Hugo Kehr is the acting chair holder of the Chair of Psychology at the Technical University of Munich. His current research, focuses on what motivates us as humans, and why we sometimes struggle with conflicting drives and a lack of willpower. Hugo Kehr received the prestigious Heisenberg Fellowship, and he is a Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation. Since 2008, he has been organizer of the Munich Symposium of Motivation, a biannual international scholarly conference.
    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

    I quite agree with idea. I think it's important to watch it many times to fully understand it. Perhaps the video was supposed to much longer. Is it possible to create the heart that follows the head by using will-power as stimulator?
