Thank You Revolution Header

It’s week 3 of the 90 Day Thank You Note Challenge!

How’s it going so far?

If you’re like me, life has already become busy in the new year.  I’m trying to keep up with my goals for the new year.  So far so good.  But it’s definitely been a challenge with the pulls and pressures of everyday life.

Sticking with the 90 Day Thank You Note Challenge requires you to be intentional.  You have to prioritize your time and carve out a few moments to write at least one thank you note this week.  When things get busy, it’s easy to forget.  Here are somethings to help you remember.

5 Things To Help You Remember To Write Your Weekly Thank You Notes

  1. Put an appointment on your calendar.  I added a recurring appointment to my calendar for Thank You Thursday.  Every Thursday at 7:15AM, a reminder pops up on my phone.  It’s a simple way to remember.
  2. Put a box of thank you notes in a place you will see every week.  My box of thank you notes are on a shelf right above my computer monitor.  You’ve heard the phrase, “Out of sight, out of mind.”  Keep your thank you notes in sight, so you remember.
  3. Find accountability.  Ask a friend to hold you accountable to write a weekly thank you note.  Make sure they check in with you each week.  Knowing someone will be checking in on you is a great way to remember.
  4. Keep a list of potential thank you note recipients.  Write names down on paper or keep a running list on your phone of people in your life who deserve a thank you note.  Write their name down along with a specific reason they deserve a thank you note.  This will help you remember who should get a thank you note in the week’s ahead.
  5. Sign up for Matt McWilliams’ Thank You Revolution.  If you’re part of the Revolution, you will get an email from Matt each week.  His email provides practical advice for writing your thank you notes.  And his email will help you remember to write your weekly thank you note.  (You can sign up by clicking here.)
