What would you most like to be recognized for?

Of late - I have gained much recognition from peers and those I lead (both locally and beyond) as being a leader with vision. I only wish those who lead my own organiztion recognized these qualities in me and not just the fact that I am a hard worker who gets things done.

Felicia, 37
Lowell, MA USA


Fisch, 47
Preston, CT USA

I'd like to be recognized for having made a small part of the world a better place.

Jill, 61
Saylorsburg, PA USA

I'd like to be recognized for my long history of voluntary activities, for professional achievements, or for the close bonds I have with my family.

Jane, 63
West Linn, OR USA

I am operating on the theory that you mean day-to-day recognition and not some big honor. I like it when people tell me they have read my column and that they have been reading it for years. It makes me feel good to know that something that I carry around in my head can
be shared with others and that they enjoy and identify with the things I choose to write about.

Cindy, 41

I would like to be recognized as a person who tries her best at all times.

Lettie, 33
Las Vegas, NV USA

I'd like for my husband to notice that I've cleaned the house.

Laura, 38
Lowell, MA USA

i would like to recognized for being a great teacher. there isnt anything else that would matter more than that. i dont really care much for recognition because i dont like all the attention. its embarassing to have everyone focused on me. as much as i like doing good things i dont really like to be around for the thanks. i like to be appreciated but not verbally or for show. i
dont need people to say thanks. i want them to show me their appreciation by doing good for themselves.

Ingrid, 22
Stockton, CA USA

I would most like to be recognized for being as intelligent and capable as I am (assuming that, in this scenario, I'm still being recognized for the things that I already am recognized for as well as the additional things I choose).

Karen, 24
Ames, IA USA

For being helpful to others and in general being a good person.


For who I am.

Ryan, 29
Riedlingen GERMANY

For being a good person.

Keri-Jade, 23
Brampton, Ontario CANADA

My attempt at loving my neighbor as myself.
