Post-Christmas Resolution, Day 270 – The Best Way To Say Thank You

I read this post by Sasha Dichter today thanking his audience. His talk was listed on TED Talks and is really worth a watch. It is inspiring.

Later in the day, I ran across this challenge. CONCERN’s southeast regional office wanted some ideas on how best to thank their donors. I gave it my best new idea.

GSUSA All Abouts Thank you

This got me thinking about how important it is to say thank you and what is the best way to say thanks.

Here is Life Hack’s take on thank-you’s.

I have to come to both appreciate receiving a thank you and try to make a special effort to give out meaningful thank you’s.

Here are my current guidelines for a thank you.

  1. No thank you to no thank you.
  2. A thoughtless thank you is no thank you.
  3. An honest thank you is better than no thank you.
  4. A thoughtful thank you is true thank you.



The best way to say thank you? Thoughtfully. Whatever mechanism you use will reflect your thoughtful efforts.

Thank you for reading. I really do appreciate it. 

Was happy to help Concern’s southeast chapter brainstorm ways to say thanks. Also served as a judge tonight in a fellow Toastmaster’s contest. I thanked him for his efforts. 

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
