LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER MOTIVATION

Man's thinking is more or less guided or directed by three basic factors: Freedom from hunger, freedom from danger, and security. The locomotive engineer has these three factors. The question then is how to reach this man who has the basic needs of life? By applying the most powerful motivator in the world--usually, it is so personal, so closely identified with each person's ego that most people will not admit even having it or being motivated by it, but it is there, always. It is the need to feel important, and it is the most powerful motivation in the world. The motivation, the need to feel important, supplies the power, the drive, to do something outstanding.
