Sometimes I feel motivation is a gift more than a personal drive coming from self initiation. It’s such a big word too.
Just the other day I was talking to one of my new designers and I asked why he wanted to join my team. It was a simple question but the answer I received was one of enlightenment. It was very humbling even.
He spoke of ‘coming home‘, he being here as ‘a great privilege‘, and wanting to ‘one day lead the team‘. I have to say it is not easy to express these sort of feelings with conviction and intensity. The human eyes, voice and expression tells it all.
It’s at that moment I felt such motivation to be more of a gift than anything else. It must be. Because there are not many out there who will feel that way and express it with such sincerity. I believe him. And I think he will achieve what he wants.
