You know how when you finish one task it’s sometimes hard to know what to do next? So we dip into Facebook or Twitter and the next thing you know, we have NO focus.
I’ve discovered a transitional task that adds to the energy and focus:
Write a quick thank you note or card. If you have these handy at the desk with stamps, it’s super easy to write one in five minutes.
You feel good, you wow someone, and chances are you will have renewed focus when you turn back to work.
What do you use in between things to refresh and re-focus? I’m also curious to know what rituals you have to write your thank you cards? When do you do it? How often? Do you even send cards in the mail?
I’m thinking if you try this practice and share it with others, we’ll all feel more grateful and maybe even get more thank you cards in the mail!
