Why motivate?

Why spend the time to explain why you need something to get done? Or how it will play a big role in the future. Or make a huge difference for all?

Why not just tell the person only what you want and expect them to do it?

Because, if you want an extraordinary performance, you won't get it with a "text" or "telegraph" communication. It will take more than "do it" or "get 'er done" or "you know as much about this as I do, so get moving" to receive anything other than a mediocre result.

We, all people, need to understand as much as possible when tackling a challenge so that our brains engage, and just maybe we come up with a great idea or a tremendous performance.

Minimalist communication gets you minimal results. Now get 'er done.
