Hey Transformers! Trevor Buccieri and welcome to your weekly minute mindset.
They say recognition and appreciation is one of the most, if not the most desired outcomes of one's hard work.
Personally, I couldn't agree more.
Of the six basic human needs (certainty, uncertainty, significance, love and connection, growth, contribution), significance remains as one of our most sought after.
Every single person wants to be loved, appreciated and recognized for exactly who they are and what they are doing.
I have never met a person who doesn't want to be involved in something greater than themselves.
Doing so fulfills as many of our needs spanning across uncertainty, growth, contribution, love and connection as well as significance.
This all sounds great but how can we deliver significance to others on a daily basis?
Here is the beauty of this lesson. It's so much simpler than you ever thought.
Recognize others around you any and every time you can for their contributions.
Say thank you and express appreciation to others around you for what they are contributing.
This simple rule goes for your team, your family, your friends and quite frankly anyone you associate with on a regular or infrequent basis.
You will never run into a position where you are asked to stop expressing recognition and appreciation.
This is a direct feedback tool you have at your access 24 seven enabling you to reinforce desired actions as well as refine actions that are a work in process.
My recommendation is to use this and to do so as frequently as possible.
Delivering recognition and appreciation on a regular basis enables us to create a growth-minded environment full of significance to everyone around us including ourselves.
Have an outstanding inspired rest of your day!
