One of the lines that caught my attention as I read Drive by Daniel Pink was "But since they don't have bosses themselves, there's nobody to manage or motivate them. They have to be self-directed. This statement reminds me much of why the class of 11 are seniors. In the next year we will have times when no one is going to be watching over us and well this mean we have to do what we are supposed to. We have to self-directed. We have to be self-motivated to do our best. We have to achieve in as many was possible, even if no one is there to give us credit. We have to do it to see the outcome and feel great about ourselves. It is incredible how most people never even realized that Wikipedia is made by people who aren't getting paid. Wikipedia is an important source that most of the world uses. This is a great example of one of the great things that have become from people being self-directed. Imagine what us Seniors (Class of '11) can do just by being self-directed. I am pretty sure we will see some of this greatness in our Senior Projects.
