From the Paper:

"Have you ever been caught in the situation of having a paper due in one week, but for some reason you just cannot get yourself to start working on it at the computer? It's not like you don't want to pass that course, it's just that you're not motivated into doing it. Motivation is something that is necessary in order to accomplish a desired goal. It is what makes a person get up and go. The Webster's New Explorer Dictionary defines motivation as the "forces acting either on or within a person to initiate behavior." Motivation is what makes people do what they do. Unfortunately, motivation is not easy to come by. ?Since the dawn of time teachers have realized how difficult it is to motivate all children to learn. One can motivate all children to learn some of the time, or one can motivate some children to learn all of the time, but one cannot motivate all children to learn all of the time.? (Sidorkin, Alexander)"
