Some people confuse motivation with performance or productivity. They assume that if motivation is high, people will perform at a high level and productivity will be high, too.

It’s not that simple. It’s possible to have a highly motivated person — or entire staff — that does not perform well or is not very productive.

Motivation is an important component in high performance, highly productive operations because to perform at a high level, it is generally helpful to have people on board who want to excel.

But motivation by itself is not enough because the desire to achieve, all by itself, does not guarantee achievement.
