Productivity is all about motivation.
Oh no. Productivity is also about knowledge, especially the sharing of it, about knowing what to do and what not to do, about learning and not making mistakes over and over again, about tools and creating your own tools, about not reinventing the wheel, and about minimizing uncertainty, fear and other factors hindering cooperation.
Of course motivation is essential to do any work. But motivation alone will not save you at the end of the day.
