Thoughts From the Coffee Table: When you care enough to send the very best.
Although it’s fun to wake up to a slew of birthday wishes on your FB feed, it’s still not as much fun as receiving an actual card in the mail.
In business, a well-written thank you email after a job interview is expected, but a handwritten note is a welcome surprise.
I used to be very good at sending cards. A long time ago. In a galaxy far, far away…
October holds the most birthdays in my family, and here I sit again, with nothing but texts, calls and mailed gifts from Amazon to show how much I care.
I decided to make a change. I began buying cards like crazy last month, hoarding them and prepping for 2020. Signing, stamping and marking with mail-by dates.
Call it my New Year’s Resolution, not come early, but rather PLANNED ahead of time.
I finally gave myself a break, knowing that cards aren’t missed because I don’t care. It’s because I haven’t PLANNED.
Ed Goodman, Sales & Marketing Exec for Hallmark penned those important words in 1944, which still stand as one of the most iconic slogans in history.
Life and business move at a rapid pace. Important things can get dropped along the way.
But at the end of the day, is that really an excuse for those you care about the most?
