Many people find it difficult to make changes to their lives because it feels like a huge task. However, making small changes can have a big impact over time.
It can be hard to stay on top of your email inbox. Between work, family, and friends, it's easy for emails to pile up and go unread or ignored. If you're like me though, then you know that the best way to get through an overwhelming amount of emails is with a little help from some powerful tools.
In this article, I'll give you five emails you can send that will make your life a whole lot better.
Every morning, send an email to a friend, family member, or coworker to express gratitude for anything.
Saying thank you for the good things in your life can make you happier.
It may appear ridiculous, but it is actually great advice on how to improve your life. There's a ton of studies that shows that just sending one goofy email a day can make you happier over time.
Saying thank you for the good things in your life can make you happier. It's a great way to remind yourself and others that you're grateful for the blessings in your life.
People like being appreciated, and if they feel you genuinely notice the good things they do for you, they’re more likely to provide extra performance. Gratitude is a virtue every person should practice. Yet appreciation means nothing if you haven’t learned the art of expressing it. We should use every chance to express to those around us how much we appreciate their love, support, and kindness. One of the key ways of showing thanks is the thank you note.
Here's an example of how to send your email.
I just wanted to say thanks for all the good things in my life. It's great to be able to reflect on the good things and be grateful for them. I'm happy that I can send a goofy email every day to make myself happier over time. Thanks for being in my life and for being such a great friend.
Wishing you a great day,
At the end of every workweek, send your supervisor an email detailing your accomplishments. This will ensure that they are aware of everything you have done and give them a record of your progress.
If you have a new idea for the business, send an email to your supervisor with your thoughts.
If you have any ideas or suggestions about how work can be done differently in order to improve workflow and efficiency, send them along via email. This will keep you on top of their mind when they are thinking of ways that things could be done better.
This will make you more valuable to your supervisor, show that you are a hard worker who is always looking for ways to improve the business and get things done, which can lead to increased trust with your employer down the road.
I just wanted to send you an email to let you know what I've been up to at work this week. I completed my assigned tasks for the week on time and with minimal interference from other people's schedules. It was tough because I had a lot of meetings scheduled during typical working hours but it turned out alright in the end. And if anything comes up last minute that needs some overtime, please don't hesitate to ask me!
Email a possible mentor once a week.
It can be tough to find a good mentor, but it's worth the effort.
There are many ways to keep yourself on track, but one of the most important is to have a mentor who can help lead, advise, and teach you along the road.
Self-development, professional advancement, and self-assurance are all aided by mentoring. As a result, it's astonishing that just 37% of working adults have a mentor, especially when so many successful people value and encourage the benefits of mentoring.
For both the mentors and the organizations they work for, the benefits of mentoring extend far beyond the personal growth of those they mentor. The advantages are numerous, ranging from encouraging diversity and inclusiveness by exposing employees to fresh ideas to increasing their chances of advancement.
If you're lucky enough to have someone that you admire and respect willing to act as your mentor, make sure you take advantage of the opportunity by emailing them once a week. Thank them for their time, ask for advice, and let them know what you've been working on.
I hope you're doing well. My name is [insert name] and I am looking for a mentor. I admire your work and I think you would be a great mentor for me. Are you interested in being my mentor? I would love to hear your thoughts.
Thank you for your time,
Make plans with a good friend via email.
Making plans with a good friend via email is a great way to catch up and stay in touch. You can share what's been going on in your life, tell funny stories, or just enjoy each other's company. Plus, it's a lot easier than trying to fit everything into an already busy schedule.
Instead of passively waiting for new acquaintances to find you, I believe that one of the best ways to build a social circle is to get out and meet people on your own. To do so, you'll need to come up with a plan together. It's sometimes as simple as that. Coordinating is more difficult at other times. It's possible to take control of your social environment if you learn how to make plans. You don't have to sit back and wait for the next opportunity to come your way; you can plan your own adventures. No need to wait for someone else to come up with an idea. If you and your pals want to attend a specific event or simply see one other more regularly, you may make it happen.
As a coworker, you should try to get to know your coworkers better outside of work. You can be the one to set up a meeting or a party for them.
It can be tough to find a good friend, but it's worth the effort. A friend can help guide you and offer invaluable advice. If you're lucky enough to have someone that you admire and respect, make sure you take advantage of the opportunity by making plans with them once a week. Thank them for their time, ask for advice, and let them know what you've been working on.
I hope you're doing well. I would love to catch up with you over coffee. When is a good time for you?
Send an email to someone you know (but don't know well) and let them know you're checking in.
It can be tough to stay in touch with people we don't know well, especially when our careers take us in different directions.
You can't tell how much you know unless you listen to other people. Success in a job is a lot about how much information or ideas you have gained over the years. When there are networks, people can share ideas and keep long-term relationships and trust going. When you get ideas, they help you both at work and home, as well as help you learn good habits that will help your career.
When people start paying attention to you, it opens the door to more chances. People who are interested in business or a job and have been networking for a long time have been able to grow quickly because they have been able to open up new opportunities. Even meeting people who are better at their jobs could be a step in the right direction. This could change your whole life for the better.
But it's always a good idea to check in on them every now and then, just to let them know you're thinking of them. A short email is a great way to do that.
I hope you're doing well! I haven't talked to you in a while and I was just thinking about you the other day. I'm doing great, btw. How are things with you?
I hope everything is good,
The bottom line is that the more you communicate with others, in whatever way suits your needs and preferences, the better. Emails can be a great resource for staying in touch with friends or colleagues while also taking care of important tasks at work. You may not think sending an email has much impact but there are many ways they can benefit your life: professionally by giving updates about projects; personally because it makes people feel valued; and even emotionally through daily affirmations (and funny messages). So next time you're thinking about putting off an email, think again. You never know what a single message might do for you!
These are all easy things we do through our emails so why not start doing these?
Try doing just ONE of these each day and let me know how it goes. I'd love to hear if you have additional tips, tricks, or stories about using emails in your life (good OR bad) that could help others! Share them with us by leaving a comment below.
