On Gratitude

“Gratitude, thankfulness, gratefulness, or appreciation is a feeling or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received or will receive.”
I think we are getting spectacularly bad at showing appreciation, showing gratitude.
Perhaps we are scared that if we say thank you, we acknowledge that we are in debt, perhaps we are just lazy, perhaps it’s too easy to say “they didn’t have to do it, they did it because they wanted to”
Whatever it is, remember that when you don’t say ” thank you” meaningfully or promptly, you lose goodwill, you lose the ability to ask for help again.
You can never express too much gratitude.

  1. Alice:

    I like this post on gratefulness. It is one of my tools to combat occasional depression that we all suffer.

    I am grateful to meet you at Ritz Customer Service day in White Plains-I only wish we had more time to talk. My office manager and I are discussing the ways to implement in the law firm those principles that we learned from Jeff.

    I hope you had a safe trip home.

    Take care,

    Bill Wilson
