Do you want a life of total chaos?

Stick with me on this…

Seth Godin writes in his new book, The Icarus Deception:

A Revolution is total chaos. That’s what makes it a Revolution.

The Thank You Revolution is no different. It is total chaos. But in a good way.

    Soooo….is there a 150% money back guarentee if all 15 of those don’t happen to me within the next year?? I’m just asking.
    I totally believe they will though. I shared this with you yesterday Matt, but I’ll share it here too. I was in a meeting yesterday discussing building relationship and networking and the presenters asked the question “What do you do to build trust with those you network with?” My response: “I have started writing out thank you cards every week and mailing them to people that have given me referrals, taught me something, or helped me in some way.”
    They were floored, the gentleman asked “Where did you learn that!! Who taught you that, because no body these days does that!!”
    I was able to tell them about a pal of mine that has encouraged us to write thank you notes on a weekly basis.
    It was neat to hear them promise me, and everyone in the meeting, many of the same things you just promised us. This is a true principle, and to me, the greatest benefit has been the change in my mindset! I’m more grateful, and I spend more time looking for reasons to thank people, rather than what I can get from people.
    It’s fantastic. Thanks Matt!

      That is a beautiful story Mark.

      I can’t wait to hear how it spreads to the others…and hope to hear their stories too!

      1. Mark Sieverkropp says:

        Yeah, it will be pretty exciting! you’ll defintely hear stories as they come

    2. Bob Winchester says:

      Such a cool story Mark! Great post Matt! I’m so signing up for this and making it a part of my story. Hope you don’t mind me stealing this idea too Matt!

      1. Matt McWilliams says:

        It was meant to be “stolen” Bob so steal away!

      2. Mark Sieverkropp says:

        Thanks Bob, it was neat to be recognized as doing something that few others do!

      3. Jon Stolpe says:

        Bob, Welcome to the Revolution!

    3. Jon Stolpe says:

      This is really cool, Mark! I’m experiencing many of the same things in my job thanks to the Thank You Revolution.

  3. Carol Dublin says:

    Such a simple way to see such huge results. Great story Mark – and I have to say practically everyone I have written to so far makes some kind of comment about how much it means to them or how I didn’t need to do that. And I see differences in how people react to me after I’ve written a thank you. Bring on the chaos Matt!

  4. Dan Black says:

    And it begins:) Looking forward to seeing this movement spread.

    1. Jon Stolpe says:

      Welcome to the Revolution!

      1. Dan Black says:

        Thanks Jon:) Glad to be among great people.

  5. Jon Stolpe says:

    I think I’ve already said quite a bit about the Thank You Revolution. But if I were speaking to someone new, I would tell people that there is tremendous power in simple expressions of appreciation. I have experienced it!
