Thank You Notes

When was the last time you wrote a thank you note?  Here’s another question: When was the last time you wrote a thank you note and really meant it.

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.
