The Month of Thanksgiving: Cicero on The Greatest Virtue

A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues. — Marcus Tullius Cicero, orator and politician

The Two Words That Could Change Your Career

According to a survey at the University of California at Berkeley, 81% of workers will put in extra time and effort to help a boss or colleague who has expressed gratitude. Yup, people will help those who say Thank you!

Sadly, only 10% of employees actually take the time to thank the people they work with. More sadly, even a smaller percentage of those who get publicity ever thank the media producers, editors, hosts, or reporters.

Note this: Saying Thank you doesn’t just work for bosses and colleagues. It also works for connecting with media, distributors, joint venture partners, bloggers, newsletter editors, and more.

The best way to connect with other people? Just say thanks. And mean it.

Who should you thank today?
