As I delved deeper into the Forum I found someone provide this idea to add here(maybe it was even you):

Have each player select 3 motivations. Then for each player the opponent removes 1 of 3 options. Select 1 of the remaining 2 (secretely). Sounds Nice.
Plus, the idea to have a selected motivation banned from your choices for a certain period of games. Very easy mechanics without aletring the gameplay and brings the game to a classic style where you play multiple rounds - like jokingly said backgammon.

Thanks again for your insights!
