What is more important: inspiration or motivation?
I must agree with the others on here and say that I believe the two ideas are completely connected. You can be stuffed full of inspiration but without action it is not going to lead you anywhere, and vice versa, you can be extremely motivated but without the inspiration behind you actions where will you end up? I have had inspiration literally waiting to pour out of me in the past, but I lacked the motivation to do anything with it. There have also been moments where I was overwhelmed with the need to act and yet I could not find inspiration to be able to accomplish anything. These two ideas are intertwined; they go hand-in-hand. One without the other is useless and will never lead you to a truly successful place.
