How To Bring Back The Impact Of Your "Thank You"s And "Sorry"s

How To Bring Back The Impact Of Your "Thank You"s And "Sorry"s

In today's era, people are taught from birth to say "thank you" and "sorry" wherever necessary, which now-a-days is multiple times a day.

But what this has resulted in is the phenomenon that most people say "thank you" and "sorry" without it meaning anything, beating the whole purpose of using these expressions.

But these expressions, and there frequent use is very necessary in today's world, no doubt. (Unless you want to look ungrateful or rude)

So to have a real impact on people with your "thank you"s and "sorry"s, I recommend adopting the following strategy:-

Prepare around 2-3 different forms of "sorry"s and "thank you"s.

One for a formal/casual use

For example, when you bump into someone

Use these as your day-to-day needs.

The others being for expressing true gratefulness/apologies.

For example- apologizing for a huge blunder.

Use these VERY rarely, only when you truly mean it,

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
