Mission For Today: Thank Someone

November 4, 2013

Mission For Today: sincerely smile and thank someone for the work they did

When was the last time you took a moment, smiled and really thanked someone for the work they did? Concluding your emails with “thanks!” or responding with “thanks” when someone agrees to a request are quick and simple ways to show some appreciation. Still, there is something special when you take that moment, look a colleague in the eye and tell them that you recognize the work they are doing and thank them for the effort. It goes beyond being polite. It shows that you value the other person.

So, today, sincerely thank someone for what they are doing. It will make both of you feel good! Maybe you’ll start a trend.

When you have completed your mission, please share your experience in the comments. How did the person react? Did they pay it forward?
