Darn This Feels Good
I love getting surprise packages in the mail. Well, not the kind where I receive unsolicited catalogs from a golf shop or a chair recliner store. More the kind where I get surprise cupcake recipe books + it feels like my birthday.
So, the other day I received an unexpected package. It was a beautifully hand-crafted letter from a lovely reader + client + friend. Her name is Michelle Ainslie (you rock lady!). It made me so so so incredible happy that it got me thinking, “Darn it feels good to be acknowledged.” You know the feeling, right? When someone manages to brighten your day with a dash of appreciation or a pinch of praise. Wicked.
Everyone likes to be acknowledged. It’s true. We love to have our e-mail returned. We love to be told when we’re doing a good job. We love to be thanked for our acts of kindness. We love to have our creativities appreciated. We love to be reminded that we’re special. Don’t we?
People remember acknowledgement + they appreciate it – Click to Tweet!
Watch today’s Friday Video Time to catch the fun details + for a special “Battle of the Babies” program interruption. Say what? You’ll know what I’m talking about when you get there, trust me.
As for today’s homework I want you to think about someone in your work or life that deserves to be acknowledged + do it. Use the comments below to share the experience + mainly how it made you feel + any unexpected turns as well.
And speaking of acknowledgements, thanks for always tuning in. You meant the world to me.
I’ll catch you again before you know it.
