The Thank You Revolution is growing. I’m hearing stories, like the one that Jon Stolpe shared, via Twitter, in the comments here, and even via notes like the one at the bottom of this post.

All of this has led me to conclude that spreading the revolution…recruiting volunteer soldiers if you will…is one of my core missions in life.

To that end, I recently began work on an e-book tentatively titled The Power of Gratitude: Stories from the Frontlines of the Thank You Revolution.

But more importantly than that, I want to enlist you today to be a part of the Revolution..

What does that mean?

It means I want revolutionaries who are willing to:

  • Commit, for at least one year, to joining me in writing at least one handwritten thank you note per week.
  • Share your thank you story with me and possibly have it published. When something amazing happens, I would love to hear about it.
  • Tell others about the revolution.

That’s it. Do you want to change the world one “thank you” at a time?

We can. I can feel it.

Are you in?

If you are, you have to let me know. To enlist go here and sign-up. I’ll share further instructions with you soon and each week I will share a special message with you to keep you on the right path.

Also, let the world know that you are a proud member of this army by leaving a comment below to say “I’m in.”

And feel free to let others know about this. Use the Click to Tweet link or the Share buttons above and below the post to tell your friends about this. More importantly, tell them “I am a part of the Thank You Revolution!

Let’s make 2013 the Year of the Thank You!

Are you in? Join now.

Here is that touching note I recently received that I wanted to share:

    You know I’m on board!

    I’m in. In fact, I’m already in. Two years ago I declared that I was a Thank You note writer! I wrote a fair amount of them, but it was inconsistent. I never really prioritized it. Thanks to the brilliant “TYT” idea, I set aside a part of my Thursday morning to be consistent. Thank you for the idea! …and thanks for being a leader of leaders.

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      Before I started getting consistent, I was in the same boat. I’d go on kicks where I’d write twenty in a week and then none for four. Now, all I try to do is write one to three per week. No pressure. In weeks where i am super busy, I write one, but that is one life impacted. Not bad for a busy week 🙂

  3. Carol Dublin says:

    Absolutely all in! Already written 5 this week, and put a reminder on my calendar for each week. Plus, one of my three focus words this year is Appreciate. Awesome revolution to be a part of. Thanks Matt!

  4. Dan Erickson says:

    This is a great idea. I need to get with this revolution.

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      Great to hear Chance!

      I look forward to hearing some awesome stories.

  5. Tom Dixon says:

    I’ve bought the thank-you cards so that is a start! Next week the first one goes out – will let you know how it goes.

  6. Lily Kreitinger says:

    I’m in. Dropped off my first one and got a very nice and smiley response from the recipient. Now on to think who is going to be next!

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      Awesome Lily.

      As much as I don’t like to admit it sometimes, I so look forward to the responses I get it. They aren’t the reason to do them, but they sure make a great reward!

  7. Mark Sieverkropp says:

    I’m in Matt. I’m so glad I went back and perused our older posts that I’d missed! I’m gonna add Thank You Thursday to my phone calendar!

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      Love it. Welcome aboard Isaac!

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      BOOM! Welcome aboard.

    2. Mark Sieverkropp says:

    I’d forgotten how important a Thankyou Note is! I’m getting back in the game!

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      That’s awesome William! Welcome to the Revolution.
