Motivation matters but it’s often overlooked. Most people are motivated to do something, some people are motivated to do nothing, and nobody is motivated to do everything.
Motivation, like beauty, is in the eye (or mind) of the beholder (or judger).
Next time you hear that someone isn’t very motivated, or you think it about yourself, ask about what’s needed to complete the sentence.
Adding “at” or “about” to “He/she isn’t very motivated…” could make the phrase more meaningful.
Nobody is totally without motivation, are they?
