Thank You Notes
Well, that got me thinking about thank you notes, letters, and e-mails. The ones from friends and family are always special and meaningful. But, I get many thank you notes at work and most of them fall short.
A few are very nice and those I put those in the ‘I Love Me' file. The ‘I Love Me' file is a file I have so on really bad days I can pull it out, read a few notes and feel better.
Over the years, I must have thrown away a thousand or more thank you notes and letters. I kept a few really bad ones as examples of what not to write. My all time favorite has to be:
Thanks for taking the time out of your hectic schedule to speak at our meeting today. Your talk on (Insert Title Here) was enlightening and informative.
It’s thank you notes like that which make you appreciate the warm fuzzy ones all that much more.
