Say “Thank You” for the lead, even if it doesn’t work out

thank you note

Saying “Thank You” is not only for reaching your goals. Its important to acknowledge gratitude during the journey.

Its no secret that I have turned down full-time positions due to my elder care situation. So recently when a lead for a telecommuting opportunity was referred to me from a contact from Facebook, I jumped at it. Unfortunately during the interview process which lasted about a week, a family crisis emerged. I felt overwhelmed and didn’t know if I could be “on-point” to continue on. So I declined.

I graciously said “Thank You” not only to my interviewer, but also to the people who referred me. Hopefully, I will be able to return the favor one day. If not, at least they know that I am appreciative of them keeping me in mind.
