Motivation



I've always loved watching people who really love what they do and do it well. Whether its a musician, an artist, an engineer or a ballgirl. There is just something inspiring about people who make a concerted effort to do their best no matter what the task at hand.

On the flip side of this coin, I'm currently trying to figure out how to motivate some people who don't have this same drive inside them. I find the whole endeavor more than a little oxymoronic. How am I supposed to motivate someone to be self motivated? The very existence of my efforts negates my goal.

It appears that the credit for doing a great job and really loving your work was incorrectly given to this ballgirl. The real credit should go to the Gatorade advertising people who faked this sports clip for a commercial.
