To try and explain why motivation is important in every journey, be it personal or professional, is a bit like trying to reinvent the wheel. It can’t be done. Motivation is such an intrinsic human characteristic that its presence is axiomatic. Motivation is the main driver of all human actions. In healthy amounts, it makes the difference between success or failure. We specified “healthy” amounts because, as the saying goes, too much of a good thing is a bad thing. Any of the extremes can be harmful – being over-motivated and lacking discipline can lead to a waste of resources, human or otherwise; being under-motivated can lead to failure or serious deficiencies.

Get others to do stuff
