This morning while I was reflecting and giving thanks for all the amazing people and experiences I've had in my career, I realized the things I miss the most today are many of the same things I took for granted at the time.
In terms of the influential people and relationships in our careers, it's been said that being taken for granted could actually be considered a compliment. That it really demonstrates how comfortable we are with somebody. In reality, if you've ever felt like you were taken for granted, it hardly feels like a compliment does it?
Thursday is a perfect time to take thankful action and give the priceless gift of gratitude to those that are most influential in your career. Literally just a 2 or 3 sentence text sent as you start the day to let them know you are thankful for the difference they have made in your life.
Actually, as a personal practice we should never get too comfortable to let people be the thing we take for granted in our careers. The material things can be replaced but relationships are priceless and irreplaceable
Check out this family friendly 2 min video from the Skit Guys that you can share with your kids on Thursday. It illustrates how little things we take for granted in our lives.
