Thank God it’s Monday!™ “Nobody appreciates me.” “I never get a pat on the back for a job well done.” We’ve heard all these complaints before and most of us have even given those from time to time. It’s no fun to feel unappreciated. But the answer, believe me, is NOT to complain about it. The answer is to become part of the solution.
Most under-appreciated employees are not alone in their misery. They’re usually part of a workplace with no culture of appreciation. The best thing you can do in this situation is to help create that culture. Express appreciation at least 20 times today, not just for what people do around you, but for who they are. Watch the faces of people whose days are made by your simple act of kindness. In no time at all, you will find yourself on the receiving end. When you help to create a culture of appreciation, everybody wins.
Have a great Monday!
