Thank you letters. Another perspective

The airline “Spirit Magazine” provided an interesting
perspective on notes of appreciation.  Bart Ratliff
author of “Why Appreciation Wins” mentioned four
power tips for this lost art.

-  think size of card that is a little bigger than junk
mail and allows you to hand write a message in
your own hand or resembles your hand from computer
(if using online greeting service).

-  think personal when conveying a personal and
frank appreciation why you feel grateful.

-  think authentic in offering your feelings.  Detail
and wordiness might dilute your message.

-  think how it would make you feel to receive one.
Article quotes Maya Angelou, “People will forget
what you said, people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them
feel.”
