Early this week I sat down and wrote out some notes to people (sent via USPS even). One note was a thank you to a couple who saw me by myself during a networking event and immediately headed my direction and made me feel right at home. It was a short note, but it felt really good to write it and acknowledge the kindness.
I started to think about other notes I’ve written to people, email or otherwise. I realized I probably don’t send as many as I should. It also reminded me of a thank you email I sent almost a year and a half ago. Generally you don’t thank someone for something like this, unless it’s dripping with sarcasm. I assure that my thank you was heartfelt. What was I thanking someone for? It was a bad review I received that I mark as the start of the journey that lead me to become a coach.
In the next couple days write a thank you note or a note acknowledging someone for something they did. It will raise your spirit and the spirit of the person receiving it.
