Media coverage provides crucial information about how the various awardees carry out their own work, what their background is, and what motivates them. (Even though these awards are all quite lucrative, money is not a motivation and in the case of MacArthur and Nobel, you cannot apply to receive them.)
This year’s 24 MacArthur Fellows include playwright Annie Baker, anthropologist Jason De León, singer-songwriter Rhiannon Giddens, computer scientist Stefan Savage, and fiction writer Jesmyn Ward. Whether we are engaged in these or other types of work, there is abundant inspiration in the background articles about this year’s Fellows, including:
If he were alive today, I think Peter Drucker would be devouring these articles, and those about the Nobel Prizes, not to mention the Drucker Institute honor in his name. Will you win these or similar awards one day? Maybe or maybe not, but one thing in common for most awardees is that they did not expect to win. And even if most of us will never win awards of this prestige, we should still strive to produce work that provides self-satisfaction and meets our internal, high standards.
