Motivation is (often) the superstar of the movie, but motivation is just one pawn in a pool of actors, each of which influence your ability to Do Work and Get Shit Done.
meaning there’s not a binary motivation switch controlling your ability to Do Work.
It’s more like
there are two primary batteries, each of which are influenced by further batteries.
so we can’t make sense of things looking solely at motivation. we have to start broader, at the bigger picture, which is this:
Your ability to Do Work and Get Shit Done.
