Sincere and genuine appreciation goes a long, long way.
If you want a solid tip to make your life much better along nearly every metric, here it is: Say thank you. Say it often, mean it when you say it, and make sure you make the recipient of that statement feel genuinely appreciated.
It brightens any day, smooths over most disagreements, and makes people want to interact with you more. Be truly appreciative of everyone, whether they made you a coffee or built your house.
And by the way – thanks for reading this. I hope it made your day a little brighter.
