It’s a great feeling to receive an applause from others. A pat at the back for a job well done or even better, a standing ovation plus a token of appreciation from friends or even strangers. However, you shouldn’t do work focusing on receiving such feedback. Doing so will jeopardise your integrity in doing your best work. You will be concerning yourself with what others might think when it isn’t their place to be. Do good work that you can stand there and be proud of instead of working tirelessly just to receive their applause.
