Intent versus Capability

Intent: noun, resolved or determined to do something.
Capability: noun, having the tools and/or skills to do something. In tools,  I include time and space.

These are requisites for getting something done. All the intent in the world without capability produces nothing. Equally all the capability in the world without intent produces the same nothing.

Interestingly, intent can lead to capability, because capability can be gained. However, you might have to have more intent,  that is, be willing to pay a greater cost.

Of course, to balance things out, if you already have a lot of capability, the cost of your intent is lessened, making it easier to get done.
