Never underestimate the power of appreciation. Showing appreciation for others is not only rewarding, but it is like making a deposit in the bank that will guarantee a nice ROI. Whenever you let someone know you appreciated them, you are more likely to get more of that appreciated stuff heading your way in the future.

Being appreciated by others feels great. Our favorite clients are those that appreciate what we do for them. They don't take what we do for granted and they recognize that we go above and beyond for them, because that's just the way we roll here at Fastspot. Those clients who show appreciation to our team undeniably get better work out of us. And in return, we appreciate them for the great clients they are, allowing us to enjoy doing what we do, so we can do our best work.

The same thing can be applied to relationships. Anyone who has ever picked up a self help book or sat in "the couch" has heard about the appreciation exercises. Sometimes we get so busy we forget how important it is to slow down and think about the things we appreciate, and then let those people know. I always hear people talking about this after they have experienced a loss. Someone dies, and all of a sudden you stop and think about things that matter to you. I don't want to wait around for someone to die, or to have a near death experience. I say, embrace appreciation as often as you can, and share it with the world.

Stay tuned for follow up posts on what I appreciate!
