Every Friday I sit down and I handwrite 3 thank you notes. I thank clients, family, friends, my husband, or anyone I feel gratitude towards. I write the thank you notes by hand because in the digital world, the art of handwritten notes is all but forgotten. Handwritten notes stand out and are considered special.
Today I thanked a client for picking me up from the airport and taking great care of me while I was working at her site. I thanked my Aunt for the lovely anniversary gift she sent me and my husband. And finally, I thanked my mother for coming over and preparing dinner for my kids and getting my daughter to cheerleading practice while I was traveling and my husband was working. I can always find someone to thank and I do this consistently every week.
I challenge you to sit down and thank 3 people this week. Don’t send an email and don’t even call. Take the time to write out a heartfelt thank you. You’ll bless some people and leave them with a smile. Do it and you’ll be smiling too.
