“Good Job!”

My son phoned me the other night, excited to tell me that his supervisor had told him he was doing a “good job”.

good job

Now, my son is not a child but a grown man, yet the compliment still made him feel good about himself, the job he was doing, and motivated him to do more.

I thought, “How easy is that?”   Those simple words cost nothing, but potentially yields huge returns.

How easy it is to …

  • Let a student know that they “knocked it out of the park!”…
  • Let a colleague know that you value what they share…
  • Let a family member know that you love them…
  • Let a member of your staff know that they were instrumental to the team’s success…
  • Let a player on your team know that they gave a “championship effort”

Yes, your praise needs to be honest and heartfelt

Yes, you need to maintain high standards…

But even then, I am guessing that there are very few students, athletes, colleagues, or staff members that we could not find something positive to say.

Go ahead… make someone’s day!

You Can Do More… your brain is lying to you…. Don’t Believe It!
