I love this! Motivation is good, but doesn’t play that much of a role.
Unfortunately I know a ton of people who are highly motivated yet they still don’t really seem to succeed much.
Actually, the more I think about it, the more I fear someone who is motivated but doesn’t show strong commitment in their past. Be this the job hopper who never sticks to one job for long or the developer who can’t complete one project before moving on to another.
They are not necessarily working “less hard” than other people but they keep getting sidetracked or distracted. There is a lot of “unfinished business” in their tracks. - Paul Jozefak
