This is so stupid because everyone likes hearing compliments, even if they get a bit embarrassed by them. Gossip is nasty but the most efficient way to get information back to someone is to say it behind their back. If you have a person who you think is the bees knees, say it often.
I did this just on the weekend. I was a telling a mate how smart and humble another one of our mates is.
The first mate has the biggest mouth on the planet and what I said got back to our mutual mate immediately. The best part about this is hearing that someone is saying lovely things behind your back, so you know they really mean it.
Total all over body glow moment right there. If someone you think is totally awesome asks you for a favour, do it.
If a mate of mine hand delivers me a fresh coffee in the afternoon with a hug? Really think about how your admired person makes you feel and why you love them so much….
Thank you cards are a total pain in the butt. I know because I send them all the time. Write thank you cards as often as you can.
I always think the best compliment is when people recommend you for awesome things. Jobs, gigs, cool events.
Do you live in Sydney? Are you a blogger, small business owner or solo-prenuer?
Book now — it will be a super awesome investment. Do you buy your thank you cards from anywhere in particular? I want to start sending thank you cards what a lovely gesture.
My last lot of thank you cards I bought at Marrimekko — it was a set of postcards with their prints on them. Post cards books work well too. I try to do this a lot, especially when someone is looking particularly fetching!
I say share the love and it will come back around one day! I told a stranger in the street they looked gorgeous the other and they were so chuffed!
I need to do it more often! This is so sweet! So thanks for the non-confrontational ideas!
Saying it behind their back is really relevant for me I this case??. Carly is the founding editor of Smaggle which launched in back when blogging was weird. Hoop earrings are totally her thing and she almost got run over by Myf Warhurst while out jogging one day.
