Motivated or Inspired?


From Simon Sinek, Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action:

Great companies don’t hire skilled people and motivate them, they hire already motivated people and inspire them. People are either motivated or they are not. Unless you give motivated people something to believe in, something bigger than their job to work toward, they will motivate themselves to find a new job and you’ll be stuck with whoever’s left.

I’ve gone through periods of time where I have been motivated and other times when I wasn’t, or at least so I thought. Maybe it wasn’t motivation I lacked in those periods, it was inspiration…
