Motivation

On this podcast with Lex Fridman, physicist Sean Carroll was asked about how he thinks in an interdisciplinary fashion and how to motivate others to think in an interdisciplinary fashion.

“I think about this sometimes - a guy knows a personal trainer and he was asked on a podcast, how do we psych ourselves up to do a workout? How do we make that discipline to go and work out? And he’s like, why are you asking me? Like, I can’t stop working out. Like, I don’t need to psych myself up.

Like, that’s I couldn’t stop doing that. I did that long before any of them were recorded.” - Sean Carroll
