Over the last year, I’ve had—and taken—more opportunities to honestly say “You’ve made my day!” than ever before.
It’s a great feeling to make someone’s day—on par, in my books, with having someone else make my day. Also, the more often I recognize that someone’s made my day, the more likely I am to have that feeling.
What’s made your day?
You guessed it: this made my day. For those of us who work independently or online, the relationships we build with those we’re dealing with are valuable. They have real meaning. But regardless of the circumstances, to get a thank you like this would boost anyone’s mood! This kind of thing makes me feel that what I do is worthwhile, and that I’m actually making a difference for someone. That’s a pretty great feeling—it’s rewarding, but it’s also extremely motivating.
Of course, it’s not always people that make our day—sometimes it’s events, or a general sense of good fortune. What’s made your day in the recent past?
