Which email folder do you turn to when you’re having a rough day?
If you don’t have an answer, here’s a simple solution for you to try:
Create a ‘Making A Difference’ file.
Every time you receive a note of thanks, a message of appreciation, or a positive comment, move it to this file folder.
Even if you hear something verbally, consider sending it to yourself an email.
Then, when you have a challenging day or need a boost of encouragement, open this file and read.
It may take a bit of time to build – don’t let that trouble you. Consider sending more notes of appreciation to others along the way, too.
The ‘Making A Difference’ file is akin to a pep talk, and can work wonders on your perspective!
What other strategies do you employ when you’re having a less-than-stellar day?
