As we know, we need little motivation to perform behaviors that are (or at least perceived) easy. Alternatively, as the effort increases, the amount of necessary motivation increases. According to Making Shift Happen, motivation is driven by internal factors, such as perceptions of the positive or negative consequences of the behavior, perceptions of the social acceptability of the behavior, and the degree to which personal identities and value systems align with the behavior.
