Beyond circulars from the bank, when was the last time you received a proper letter? Let alone waited in eager anticipation for one. Especially one that was handwritten!

I’ve actually received some really lovely letters - and cards - recently. They mean the world. And have got me thinking.

Text messaging, email and multiply copied, mail merged letters can – in context – depersonalise communication, can’t they.

The care in personally crafting a message to the intended recipient, as a thank you more often than not, just makes such difference. Care and craft rather than copy and paste. I’d make that part of any management mantra.

Worth thinking about. It can make you - and others - feel on top of the world...
