At the Happiness Conference last week I chatted to one CEO who recognised that giving individual thanks to his employees is incredibly important, but he still struggles to do so. I get it. People are busy. But when are we ever too busy to say thanks? My response was uncharacteristically firm and I’ve just popped some blank cards in the post for him to start sending. I know. Tough, right?
Of course, if you want to thank someone without opening up the notelets, you can also nominate them for the Make Me Joyful ‘Thank You of the Month’ which is exactly what Vicky did. Vicky is the co-founder of the fabulous Post Pals charity which I featured earlier in April and she wants to recognise her beautiful friend Kate.
Over to Vicky.
Kate makes me joyful because…
I set up Post Pals and run it with Kate’s help; without Kate there would be no Post Pals. She is ill too, having to spend most of her time resting in bed, using her laptop causes pain and more tiredness but she does it for Post Pals. Kate is one of those rare people who is happy working away in the background with very few people knowing what amazing things she is doing. She will do the kind of jobs that others don’t want to, just because she knows they need to be done for someone.
She is also the best friend anyone could have, so please can I nominate ‘My Great Friend Kate’ for the thank you of the month?
Thank you Kate xx
I love this. Don’t we all have an unsung hero of a friend who just beavers away in the background being fabulous? Let’s all promise to tell them how special they are right this second. Don’t worry, I’ll wait.
Whether it’s a friend, family member or even a kindly stranger, if you’d like to honour someone publicly let me know who needs a special thank you (and a MMJ treat in the post) and email me your nominations now: firstname.lastname@example.org
