Quote of the Day

When someone does something for you, particularly in the workplace, it’s very easy to take it all for granted and fail to show any appreciation for the effort the other person has made on your behalf. I regret to say that I have been guilty of this many times over the years. However think about this; how do you feel when all your efforts are simply taken for granted? If you’re like me, I suspect you don’t like it very much. The old adage that you should treat others in the way that you would prefer to be treated is very true. Treat me well and I will respond well to you. Treat me badly and the next time you need something from me you’ll find I’m a bit too busy to assist you at all. From experience I know that a simple thank you can work wonders. Show your appreciation and it really lifts people. And a thank you doesn’t cost you much does it? If only we could all show our appreciation for other people, the world would be a better place. I think so anyway.
