There are not enough “Thank You’s” in my line of work.

I’m always the villain.
Never the hero.

It would be nice to hear more thanks for the work I provide to my customers everyday.

This got me thinking. How often are other thankless jobs recognized and appreciated?

How often does the legal team get a Thank You?

How often do Human Resources get a kudos?

What about your own manager? Do you ever tell them you appreciate their time and efforts?

It’s easy to get lost in feeling under appreciated and overworked.

Take today to tell someone how much you appreciate their work. Find a teammate, co-worker, or even someone in a department you barely know and say Thank you.

Send them an email.

Pass along a Card Against Apathy.

Or even better, put a handwritten note or card through inter office mail or on their desk.

Do something small for someone today to show you appreciate what they do.

We could all show more appreciation to those around us.

A customer at Tim Hortons decided to pay for the order of the next person in line. The trend continued for 3 hours and 228 people.

Can you start a chain of kindness today?
