In the area of professional development or when planning new projects, it is undeniable that the success or failure depends increasingly on knowledge to use resources and timely management of the tools that are available, and not mistake the concepts of the elements. In this regard it is essential not to confuse the meaning of motivation and knowledge. Often seem to have the same scope, but really is not.

The way to understand the phenomenon of motivation, which many prefer to the capacity of the person, determines the quality of the goals of any company. Therefore it is vital to understand that to be motivated to have very different ability to learn new skills.

Similarly you have to know that motivation responds to a state that eats actions whose results are positive, so that tampering is always related to the immediate action, and at the time of tripping over negative events fades very quickly. Therefore, it is not a state able to stay firmly enough to ensure stable performance over a long term action.

This is the fundamental reason that motivation has nothing to do with ability. Of course, not to be more motivated a person will be able to perform certain actions, to accompany be harder, but not to modify or to creatively propose new strategies to overcome the barriers of difficulty. With the motivation may be more likely to face activity, and that push can help achieve better results, but the level of capacity will remain the same as before the action started.

By forming a team responsible always prefers their employees to be motivated because they understand that in this way it will be easier to achieve the objectives. However, if we talk about innovation in the workplace likely to encounter great difficulty in raising new strategies or to design a plan of attack to completely new and compromising situations.

A high degree of motivation clearly favors the person to improve their commitment to the performance of tasks, assumes that the most momentum, but be motivated not make him better professional or increase their ability to deal with difficulties, qualities that eventually determine the competitiveness of a worker.

On the other hand, a team overly motivated but lacking creativity or problem-solving capacity to innovate, it runs the risk of ruining the entire project, because it assumes commitments to tasks that are not ready or has the capacity to address them with some assurance of success.

Therefore, it is vital to be motivated, as well as support of that motivation in a management capacity based on formal knowledge. The above is in the command chain, much greater the need to properly combine motivation with ability.

Motivation is an incentive that helps to get certain sections of the lens, helps to better walk the path towards achieving the results, but does not contribute to maintain or properly manage the moment of success, let alone becomes a tool to withstand difficult times, so pawn all on the motivation can drastically reduce the quality of the final result.
