A word of recognition

Every so often someone sends you a thank-you, a word of recognition and appreciation. This email arrived today from the Millarville Ride for STARS (Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society). It's a fund-raising event held every year in support of Calgary's air-ambulance service. These words brightened my otherwise very average afternoon:

Hi Dave:

Seems a long time since that VERY warm day in September when we had the STARS Ride, right?? And I have been VERY slow in writing to thank you once again for your help and contribution to the cause. I don’t know if you heard or not, but we ended up grossing $74,000, which is a record for us. I was so pleased with those results. It makes me believe that we will indeed be able to reach our target of $1 million accumulated proceeds by the time we have our 20th anniversary in 2012.

I have truly appreciated your involvement over the years. It just definitely would not be the same if we couldn’t count on you. Even the one year you sent your associate, it was great, but not terrific!! So thanks so much from me on a personal note for coming out year after year to provide the music and the sound system. It is absolutely a critical part of our delivery.

I wish you a very enjoyable and meaningful holiday season and the best in the new year...

It feels good, doesn't it? One appreciates being appreciated.

Well, if you ever get discouraged by your chosen path, re-read that message and it will erase any doubt.

You have worked hard the past 20 years to build up your "personal touch" in your business. It is nice when that specifically is recognized. It is equally grand that you are able to contribute to such worthy causes. Good Job!

I have a similar note from a client of mine, that reminds me every so often that the help I give in my chosen field, impacts postively on the lives of my clients. It truly is a wonderful feeling, more valuable than the fees charged for the services provided.

Hi Dave,

That was nice. It good to do good work and even better to be reconised for it, even though the good work is suppose to be the reward in itself, but a pat on the back does make it all worthwhile.
