Later in the day, I ran across this sparked.com challenge. CONCERN’s southeast regional office wanted some ideas on how best to thank their donors. I gave it my best new idea.
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.
- No thank you to no thank you.
- A thoughtless thank you is no thank you.
- An honest thank you is better than no thank you.
- 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.
