Appreciation, Approval and Attention

“Three general rules for empowering the people around you, which apply to everyone you meet, are appreciation, approval and attention.

  • Voice your thanks and gratitude to others on every occasion.
  • Praise them for every accomplishment.
  • And pay close attention to them when they talk and want to interact with you.

These three behaviours alone will make you a master of human interaction and will greatly empower the people around you.”

Rereading this quote from Brian Tracy reminds me of a goal I set myself sometime back. It’s to make sure that whenever I notice something praiseworthy – whether that has been something someone has written, said or done – that I do make the time to pass on that praise.
