For some time now I have been disciplining myself to write thank you notes. One thing that has made it easier to keep up with the practise has been the development of a template.
Here it is….
The Perfect Thank You Note by Peter Gianoli
* its never too late to write a thank you note, just add
” I know this is long overdue but I think of _____________ often”
The best thank you note is short, to the point and personal. I find 3 paragraphs does it.
Paragraph 1: One sentence where you say thank you for –
“Thank you for hosting me to the _____________ last weekend.”
Paragraph 2: Two sentences personalising the note, specific to you, them, the gift etc. Avoid commas, hence two short sentences are better.
Paragraph 3: One sentence restating the thanks.
“You have my thanks and best wishes”
It’s a wrap.
