Ten days ago I mentioned a post by Donovan Nagel on his website, The Mezzofanti Guild (great name BTW!). I read it, thought about it, and then came to the conclusion I disagreed with Donovan (and with what I’d formerly believed too).
I’ve since written a little more (than 100 words) elsewhere, expanding on my thinking.
In a nutshell—in case you’re not into hyperlinking—is that when you allow ‘motivation’ to enter your vocabulary you have already decided that the thing you need the motivation to do is, to some degree, a form of drudgery.
What do you reckon?
