Some people would say it’s the time of the year to be thankful.
I’d say that’s BS.
Anytime of the year is a time to be thankful.
One way I show my thanks and appreciation is I write hard copy notes – postcards, letters….
As a connector I like to let people know directly that I am grateful for their time and attention. Great conversations, support – whatever it might be.
I’m gonna challenge you today as we get into the last part of 2018 to start writing thank you notes – on a regular basis. Once a week, twice a week, every Monday – whatever it is. Write them and send them and see the impact they make.
They should make you feel good because gratitude is an exercise in giving.
They’ll make the recipient feel great that you remembered them personally. It goes well above and beyond sending an email or a text – I guarantee you.
As a connector, I’ve been doing this for decades. It has huge impact. Send a thank you note of gratitude, be specific. The reason you give it is because you want to give it.
Be thankful. Be a connector.
