Motivation comes in many forms. For some of us, it is the challenge of a new task, fear of failure, or a desire for monetary gain. For others, it may be verbal appreciation, the joy of solving a difficult problem or fulfilling a lifelong passion. In Lucy’s case, her motivation came from the aspiration to achieve her personal career goals and challenge herself.
