My friend Victoria writes beautiful thank you notes, she always has; and I so appreciated it when I received one. She’s been a role model to me for so much of my career, so I thought it was time to resurrect the lost art of the thank you note.
Every time someone goes out of their way–goes above and beyond, in their work, I send them a thank you note. One of my desk drawers is filled with blank notecards at the ready when I need to drop a not in the inter-office mail. What used to be simply good etiquette, now is a shock to the person who gets a little card with words of gratitude for a job well done.
Thanks, Victoria. Your example still helps me every day!
