I love writing note cards. I love how I feel when I do it. I love how I feel when a person responds to me after receiving one. Good things happen when you write note cards.
Here’s a nice model you can use when writing note cards:
Start by finding a quote that you really resonate with. You can use a website sure as: http://www.brainyquote.com/ as source for great quotes.
Sample Note Card:
Dear [First name],
I read this quote today and thought you might enjoy it.
“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.” – Louisa May Alcott
Thank you (first name) for all of your support. I’m here as a resource for you and those you care about.
Let me know when you’re free for coffee next week. I’d love to catch up on what’s happening with you!
The person receiving it will appreciate the time and thought you invested into it.
Make this a daily practice as part of your Engagement Hour!
