Many people are so busy every day that they end up overlooking two key aspects of continued success:

  • They work too much IN their business and don’t spend enough time working ON their business.
  • They don’t take the time to show enough gratitude.

Today we will focus on the latter.

When the topic comes up in conversation, many people I talk to tell me they don’t show enough gratitude. They frequently say, “I really should thank people more often.” I always agree.

No one has achieved any level of success without the help and support of others. Everyone owes thanks to someone. Maybe it’s one of your key supporting employees – someone who’s not normally in the spotlight but is loyal, dedicated, and does a great job. Maybe it’s your spouse or significant other. Perhaps it’s the person who serves you a coffee each day and always seems to be happy and helpful. It could be a former teacher who inspired you or someone who helped you when you were down.

Every Friday for the past two years I’ve had a recurring entry in my calendar labelled, “Gratitude”. The entry is to remind me to send someone a note to thank them for something they’ve done. The recurring calendar entry helps me keep “Expressing gratitude” top of mind so that I don’t forget when life gets busy.

It’s important that we take the time to thank those who have helped us or who demonstrate a great attitude. There are so many unsung heroes out there. I encourage you to make it a regular habit. Leave yourself a reminder if need be. I guarantee you will make their day.
