Who can you thank today?

December 11, 2009 — Leave a comment

On the desk in my home office I have a note card that says, “Who can I thank today?”

It’s a simply question/statement that reminds me to always think about who I can say thank you to. Naturally as a leader there are many people close to me who dedicate their time and effort to my vision of helping people. They volunteer for car washes, fundraising teams and attend many events.

Here’s a list of the many people I try to regularly say thank you to:

  • My two mentors
  • Volunteers
  • My friends
  • Donors
  • Family

As you work throughout your day, simply ask, “Who can I thank today?” It’s a simple question that will help you remind others that you’re thankful and appreciative about the work they do.
