Sure, you have lots of “must-dos” this Wednesday. Gotta keep the spouse/partner/better-half happy. Brush your teeth. Make phone calls. Cut loads of auditions. Go prospecting for jobs. Fulfill obligations of all kinds. Pick up the kids…whatever…
But somewhere, somehow, find the time to say THANK YOU to someone.
- a client
- the mailman
- your neighbor
- a perfect stranger
- a producer
- your mom
- a store clerk
See? The possibilities are endless.
Wanna go a step further? OK, here’s your homework for extra credit: Tell someone you appreciate them.
That’s actually more than just a thank you. Right?
Just think about the last time someone took the time to stop and say you did a good job, and they appreciated that. Wow! Mind blown! An extra spring in your step. A win!
Now, think about all the times you made a mental note to say that to someone and let it pass. Opportunity lost!
It takes so little out of your hide to tell someone you appreciate them, but it means SO much to the object of that gratitude.
Oh…and there’s no payback for this. The DOING of it is its own reward.
