Someone left a very nice anonymous post-it-note on my
office cubicle desk which I received last Friday morning.
Now, I'm just going to be very forthright & say that Friday
was should have been a horrible day. Found out that one of our cars may very well be a very sour lemon, had an extremely hectic workweek, trying to do too many things & feeling unlimited strings dangling, untied...But then there was this note.
And this note made me feel, despite the bad news & chaos, wonderful. It occurred to me that part of what was so great about the note was that it was anonymous. Someone wanted to say something nice w/out any recognition. They just wanted me to know. And that feeling has carried with me throughout the past several days.
It has made me think about paying it forward. I know it is not a new idea, but think about it: To whom could you send an anonymous note of encouragement? Consider it a challenge. Write someone a note. Today.
