The Decline of Thank You Thursday
I first learned about Thank You Thursdays back in January of 2013. My pal Matt McWilliamseven started a revolution around the idea of writing thank you notes to folks every Thursday. And he had great success with this revolution–dare I say more than even he had hoped for.
But recently, I have noticed a decline in my enthusiasm for Thank You Thursday.
I don’t write as many thank you notes on Thursdays anymore. I just don’t have the drive to do it like I used to do.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great idea, and it is very beneficial to probably hundreds of people the world over, but it’s not for me anymore. At least like it used to be.
Back when I joined the revolution I set a weekly reminder on my phone every Thursday at noon to remind me that it was Thank You Thursday. For the past month, I just look at my phone and disregard the reminder.
I’m sorry Matt. I failed.
