Some of why I do good things is for the kudos but it's rather far down the list. In many ways, what I'm interested in is fostering an environment that is similar to the one I want to live in. It just makes sense for me to do the things that I do. I do wonder if people think the main reason I do things is for the kudos.
The other thing that feels odd is that I seem to get most of the compliments while it's generally a team effort between Cindy and I. Usually we're sharing the effort although sometimes it's more one than the other. Another aspect of us being a team is that I tend to ask if I can do things for people while Cindy provides food (yum!), items (what did we forget?), and facilities (our house!) to enable people to do things.
