Im a teacher, I get neither and I don't particularly like either.
I'll go with the beer :)
In the past acknowledgement but these days im happy with anonymity and a sack of cash.
its more a case of experience/age than economics. i needed validation in my work when younger because thats the measure of an artist or creative person. Monetary gain is entirely secondary, in fact, irrelevant. But in later years and after reasonable success you know you are good enough, smart enough etc and thevalue attached to your work is financial. You can only play the starving artist for so long.
If "reward" means that I want my efforts to accomplish something, then I guess I'd go for that.
Yeah, and how would "sex" be accounted for?
Recognition would be good.
neither I like to remain on the edge of the circle and be anonymous or blend in
Great question. More recognition than reward. :o)
Interesting, Perhaps, for the Nobel contenders, recognition is a reward.
wow.. now that is a great question. I never thought of it that way before. I need to ponder this!
Perhaps a bit of both but probably recognition more so. Who wants to work like a dog and yet it isn't recognised or rewarded so you continually struggle financially? I think I'm only human and I feel put upon like everyone can do and eventually it affects your self worth.
Sometimes just having your boss tell you you did a good job is enough. Ithink everyone needs that.
deep deep deep down i do want to be famous but practically thinking that doesnt last very long, so i prefer having something more substantial like money ....if we only consider recognition and reward...otherwise there are other things in life that are more important..
I defiantly don't want recognition makes life to hard. The reward I get from work is personal and gratifying. The reward from my family takes a while but I see it now in the adults my kids are becoming I like to think I had a part in that.
Probably deep down recognition.
Definitely not for all situations, just my writing, then at least I can be somewhat proud of something I have created.
