What is it?

Motivation is defined as someone's willingness to do something. For example, if you have a lot of energy and inspiration, you might have a lot of motivation to complete a number of tasks. For some people, a lot of motivation is a once in a while thing. For others, motivation comes easily from everyday life. No matter what, we all experience periods of high and low motivation.

Why is it important?

Motivation is the main driving factor in our fast-paced lives. Motivation is why we set dates, have goals, plan ahead, study, practice, and so on. It is one of the most valuable assets to have because it helps propel us further into getting things done and attaining more skills. Having more skills is important because it helps you complete tasks and it gives you a variety of attributes that others probably don't have. A multitude of skills can also help you get a job or hobby. Having a job, hobby, and overall organized life is pretty important.
