What motivates us?

A man was walking down the beach one day. Just ahead of him was a little boy picking up each starfish that was stranded on the beach and throwing it back into the ocean. The man said, "Why are you doing that?" and the boy answered, "The starfish cannot live in the hot sun, they need to be back in the water." "My goodness," said the man, "look in front of you, the beach is littered with starfish, you couldn't possibly help them all. So why do you bother? What does it matter?" The boy looked at the man as he threw the starfish that he'd cradled gently in his hand back in to the water and said, "It matters to this one."
