Last week the "Halls" from California were in town to check on their investment property that Landmark Group manages for them. On Thursday, they provided lunch for the entire Landmark team as a thank you for the hard work that everyone has done. Not only did they provide lunch, but they attended the lunch themselves, and offered up alot of personal thank you's to employees.
It's always nice to hear that someone thinks you're doing a good job, but on the other hand, it also made me think about how lax I am in offering up those "thank you's." Sure - we say "thanks" almost as commonly as someone says "how are you?" - but to say it with heartfelt sincerity probably doesn't happen that often. From this point forward, just as the Halls let Landmark Group know how much they appreciated our work, I will make it a point to say more heartfelt "thank you's" because that's a win-win situation.
