Notes are very powerful. They express your thanks, encouragement, sympathy, apology, congratulations, feelings, and requests to others.
Many of us create notes on a computer and print them or send them through the Internet. However, I believe the most effective notes are handwritten. A handwritten note is personal and nowadays, rare. Because of this, it will be given more attention by the reader and have a greater impact.
I would encourage you to start writing notes regularly. What a simple way to influence people’s lives in a positive way. If you are concerned about how to get started, the following two books on the subject may be useful.
– “The Art of the Handwritten Note: A Guide to Reclaiming Civilized Communication” by Margaret Shepherd
– “Business Notes: Writing Personal Notes That Build Professional Relationships” by Florence Isaacs
Get a note card, pen and stamp. Write a note to someone who has been on your mind today. Who knows how much that person will change for the better due to the few minutes you take out of your busy schedule to write a few sentences.
