That would be a really nice follow up from an event if I had actually attended or from a supplier if I had actually purchased anything. But when someone sends out a response and it doesn’t have an action to connect it to I’m left with the feeling that there really isn’t a connection there at all.
Next week there will be a lot of focus on saying “Thank you”. The generic emails have already begun to fill my inbox. And, while there is so much to be thankful for, the second part is really key. Who are you thanking? And for what?
At this time, I would like to tell you who and for what.
Thank you, Matt Vaughan, for supporting me in every way.
Thank you, Chuck Villard, for all the work you did to get this blog site up and running.
Thank you, John Bergquist, for the encouragement and support.
Thank you, Lisa Tuttle, for the friendship and laughter.
Thank you, Jan Lewis, for your faithful insights and heart.
Thank you, Crystal Liles, for the incredible graphic art support on short notice.
Thank you, Jack Lynady, for the fresh insights.
When I sit down to write it’s because each of these people has encouraged me to share what’s on my heart and mind.
Who do you want to say “Thank you” to? Make it personal. Let those who matter know. Strengthen the connection.
“Whatever else anything is, it ought to begin by being personal.”
