When Was The Last Time You Did It?

Posted by collinsadmin on March 16, 2007

Get your mind out of the gutter. I’m not talking about that (got your attention though didn’t I). I’m talking about when was the last time you said thank you?  When was the last time you told your parents, your siblings, your spouse, your co-workers, or your employees thank you?

It is human nature to want to be appreciated. How many times have you worked your butt off for somebody or something and then you got it done and you didn’t even receive a thank you? How did you feel?  Probably pretty bad.  You tried your best, you worked hard and they couldn’t even acknowledge you for it.

Now, I’m not saying that you have to go out and send a thank you card or even send a gift, I’m just saying two simple words like thank you could go a long way. Why should you say thank you?  If it wasn’t for your parents you wouldn’t be where you are today. If it wasn’t for your siblings and all the times you fought you wouldn’t be the person you are today. If it wasn’t for your co-workers who else could you vent to when the boss ticks you off? If it wasn’t for your spouse, who else could you go to for moral support when things go bad? If it wasn’t for your employees, would your company be running as smoothly as it is?

 Those are just a few examples.  So why don’t you just take the couple of seconds out of your life and tell everyone around you how thankful you are for them and how thankful you are for all the help that they have given you. You would be amazed at the response you get from just two simple words like Thank You! 

Food for thought,
