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.
