Time For The New Year And Thank-Yous
Posted by infinitygoods on January 1, 2008
Resolve to write a short thank-you note to each person who gave you a gift.
The person who gave you a gift took the time to either make it by hand or to brave the nasty Christmas crowds and traffic. Neither rain, snow nor sleet prevented them from going out just for you. They wrapped the gift just for you, and they might even have had to wait in those long post office lines. They could have spent their time and money on plenty of other people, including themselves, but they chose to do something nice for you.
The least you can do is show them your appreciation by sending them a short note. It doesn’t have to be long, but it will make them happy, and even more so these days when so few people send thank-yous. So be one of the polite people.
And I’ll let you in on a little secret. Even if you don’t want to be polite, even if you don’t give a hoot about that kind person who thought so nicely about you, even if you are just one big selfish person, it will be in YOUR best interest to send them a thank-you note. Today, so few people send thank-yous that you’ll get noticed in a good way and people will give you EVEN MORE GIFTS.
