There Is Only One Motivation, And That Is Desire – Jane Smiley

There Is Only One Motivation, And That Is Desire - Jane Smiley

“In my experience, there is only one motivation, and that is desire. No reasons or principle contain it or stand against it.”

– Jane Smiley

It’s hard to bring yourself to do something when you don’t want to do it – harder, still, to keep doing it for any length of time. Of course, desire is the key switch that can propel anyone to do long, laborious tasks day in and day out for as long as required – more than money, more than obligation, more than anything else.

Desire can drive you to your next greatest project and ultimately, to who you are, whether, like Jane Smiley, it’s a long career as a novelist, or as an entrepreneur, or anything else.
