Remember To Say Thank You

How many times a day do you say thank you?  Showing your appreciation lets others know you value their hard work.  Those who feel a sense of entitlement may not believe saying thanks is important and may overlook showing gratitude.  This is a big mistake.  If you are not saying thank you often enough, it's not too late to change your attitude.  Here's some ideas:

  1. Commit yourself to saying thank you every time someone adds value to your day.  Do this for thirty days.  Don't skip any days.  Be consistent.
  2. Observe how others react when you show gratitude.  Some people are craving a pat on the back.  Your thank you may be the only one they get all day long.
  3. When you receive extraordinary service, ask to see the boss and let them know how well you were treated by their employee.
  4. Remember your family.  When one of your children goes above the call of duty, make a big deal about it.  Lavish praises on your spouse for the little things they do to make your life better.
  5. Tell others about the great service you received from an employee.  Remember to recommend them to your friends.  The best compliment you can give the person offering you a service is to pass their name along to others.
In closing, I would like to thank all those who read this daily blog, especially the ones who take the time to offer a comment.  If you wouldn't mind sharing this blog with two friends, I deeply appreciate it.  It is the best compliment you can give me.  Thank you.
