Tell Them

Today tell those around you that you appreciate them.  Tell them.  Not in a note, an email or a text but face to face.

If you don’t see them today do it the next time you see them.  If you won’t have a chance to see them, then call them.  Let them hear you say it.

There is so much good we can do with the technology and the ever changing world that we live in, but we can also lose the ability to verbally express our appreciation for the people in our professional and personal life.

I would even go so far as to have a crazy idea that we not just make this a one time thing but make this a part of our daily life. Weave it into the fabric of who we are and how we treat others. 

Don’t fall for the thinking that people “know I care about them”.  People need to hear it.
Tell them.

I’m cheering for you. 
Go cheer on somebody too.
