Hi everyone, my name is Martin and I decided to commence studying a double degree in Psychology and Sport and Exercise Science at the start of this year. I am currently participating in the third year Motivation and Emotion unit due to completing Psych 101 and Psych 102 in First Semester and Winter Term.
I worked in the public service in an IT/Communications role full-time for 6 years and this year I have started a new part-time role in the same field to ensure that I have enough free time to complete my full-time studies. I decided to study Psych/Sport Science as it is a field I have always been interested in and while I enjoy my current job, the IT/Communications field is not my true passion.
As part of the Motivation and Emotion unit at the University of Canberra I have chosen to author a book chapter titled "Endorphins and motivation - How do endorphins affect motivation?".
- Added the following comment to the Job Satisfaction book chapter - Motivation and emotion/Book/2018/Job satisfaction: U3073945 (discuss • contribs) 22:44, 2 September 2018 (UTC) Apologies as I wasn't sure where to provide this feedback: Looks like a great start, one suggestion is that maybe for the overview you can add information about how Australians work long hours and therefore it's important for us to have job satisfaction as we spend a lot of time at our jobs. I remember reading that Australians work the longest hours in the developed world so if you can find evidence of this as a citation it might help provide some context for your overview.
