I don’t know about you but I still like holding an actual book in my hand. I enjoy the pleasure of flipping through a glossy magazine. I don’t mind being handed a sheath of papers and having the ability to sit down and read, mark it up, and curl the pages. I’m not a fan of newspapers though; I don’t think I’ve sat and read a printed newspaper for years.
But I like love hand written cards and notes.
A birthday card received in the mailbox. A note left on my desk. A post-it note slapped on my monitor.
Nice little reminders to stop for a moment and appreciate human connections.
So here’s something awesome you can do today.
Take a few minutes, sit down with pen in hand and compose a thank you note to someone who’s made a difference in your week. Surprise your co-worker in the next cubicle, the hard-working receptionist who manages the flow of visitors to your office, or a colleague in another department.
Deliver it yourself…or support the USPS. Your choice.
