IS IT ABOUT ME OR YOU?
IS IT ABOUT ME OR YOU?

We all know that there are many good things we can do for other writers on WDC. We see examples of generosity and kindness each and every day.

But now, I am going to approach a question that may make each of us a little uncomfortable. When doing what we do, whether reviewing, posting, or any of a score of other things, what is our motivation? We would all love to believe that our motivations are driven by the noblest intentions. However, if we are completely honest, we must admit that we savor the admiration and attention of our fellows. For example, when we give a review, do we wait to see how the author appreciated what we said about the work? Are we more interested in how they responded to us that what we did for them?

We all like to be appreciated for the good things we do; that is just the natural way of it. But always try to remember that it is not about us, but rather, the person we are privileged to encourage and help.
