“I don’t think I was ever motivated by the notion of winning prizes, although I have a couple of dozen of them in the other room. I was more motivated by curiosity. Never by the desire for financial gain. I just wondered how things were put together. Or what laws or rules govern a situation, or if there are theorems about what one can’t or can do. Mainly because I wanted to know myself.”
Claude Shannon: Why Curiosity Is Critical To Your Success
Darius Foroux

The motivation has to be intrinsic in order to be the best. Think of any superstar athlete — they didn’t get there because they wanted the money. They want to be the best. If you are the best, the rest will follow. Curiosity is crucial — ask questions when you don’t understand and always wonder why? You learn so much and dots start connecting!
