Organizing, time management tips:
Write a thank you note. 3-5 minutes. Tell them specifically why you are thanking them and let them know what it means to you. When was the last time you took just 3-5 minutes to sit down and hand write a thank you note? When you do it this time and in the future take the time to make it count. For instance, notice how what you write might make that person feel. It doesn’t have to be wordy or lengthy it simply needs to say what comes from your heart. Secondly, take notice of how it makes you feel to write it, seal and address it, select the “right” stamp, and to put it into the mailbox. Both you and the recipient will benefit from the generous use of your time.
