“Look inward. Don’t let the true nature or value of anything elude you.” — Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 6.3

Appreciate or value? Creatives really wrestle with the distinction. So do thoughtful members of their audience.

There are several ways to express appreciation for worthwhile endeavors. Clapping, a smile, maybe a nod during a live exchange. A “Like,” “Comment,” or “Share” during an online one.

But when you value someone’s efforts, you go a step further. You invest, tip, or otherwise contribute. You validate and encourage efforts worth supporting.

What do you appreciate? What do you value? How do you express each?

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
