A Note of Gratitude for the Characters in your Career Story

With Thanksgiving approaching, it’s a great time to pause and reflect.  You’ve done some pretty amazing things in your career.  Who are some of the main characters in your career story?  Did you have a teammate that was with you in the trenches when you made that impossible deadline?  Was there a manager that pushed you to the next level?  What about a mentor that pointed out some of those bad habits that were holding you back?  Or a hiring manager that took a risk on you even though you weren’t 100% qualified for that job?

Take some time this Thanksgiving to send your main characters a handwritten note, (or LinkedIn message, text, email, carrier pigeon, an Edible Arrangement, whatever) to share your gratitude for the role they played in your career story.  And be specific.  None of your career highlights happened without other people.  As Dr. Henry Cloud shares, “there is no such thing as a self-made man.”

Thank YOU for reading this blog.  You are a character in my career story as I grow my own business and build new connections.  If you like what you’ve read, you can sign up on my home page to receive each blog via email.

Happy Thanksgiving!
