Remember when you were younger sitting in a classroom and there was a teacher who talked and talked about a subject and sent you straight into a boredom coma.
When we find something that motivates us and consumes all our energy we tend to forget the surrounding of which we are in. But the fact of the matter is not all motivation can be productive. A fair amount believes that it is nothing more than a distraction or a form of procrastination. And this could very well be true! Yet how often have you seen or done something that pleased you at the moment and was forgotten? Days, weeks, months, or even years later it resurfaced in a manner which aided you with something you were doing or saying.
Which presents the question is the motivation required to accomplish something today or in the future? Today you doodled on the desk in a classroom simply because you were bored. In the future, you could be an artist, a designer, or a teacher yourself. So when you become distracted or procrastinate due to lack of motivation to partake in a specific moment it could, in fact, be generating the mind for better things in the future.
