1. Introduction

My point is that we should start saying “Thank You” in a lot more situations.

In fact, I’m starting to believe that “Thank You” is the most under-appreciated and under-used phrase on the planet.

It is appropriate in nearly any situation and it is a better response than most of the things we say. Let’s

Text: When I was growing up, my family had a rule: when someone did something for us, we were expected to say “Thank You”. It was a simple rule that really had some meaning and it worked for us. In the early days of my career, I wasn’t entirely sure how this advice would hold up against today’s technology and post-modern culture; but as I’ve spent more time with people who find themselves in similar situations, I know this is still true for them.

I’m going to share research on what people actually do when they hear “Thank You” and how certain types of words work better than others. It turns out there are actually three different types of thank yous people use and these differences are important to understand when trying to improve your own communication skills.

3. Thank You is Appropriate

There are many ways to say “Thank You”, but each one is better than the next. Here are a few:

1. Thank you for sending me the link to your blog post!

2. Thank you for telling me about your idea!

3. Thank you for sharing that article of yours on Reddit!

4. Thank you for giving us feedback on our new app!

5. Thank you for buying our book or sending us a review on iTunes!

4. Thank You is Better than Most Responses

One of the best ways to say thank you is to be honest and genuine. When someone does something for you, it’s natural to want to say thanks, but that doesn’t mean thanking them for the same thing over and over again.

When I was a teenager, I worked at a summer camp for disabled kids. I was the guy who cleaned up the messes after everyone left in the morning, organized all their stuff into their own places and hauled it away in baskets so they didn’t have to carry it. Every single one of them would come up to me and say “Thank You” when they were done with their work. It’s an incredible feeling to know that someone thought of you when they were working on something important and it meant a lot to them.

I’ve also seen people who say “Thank You” after they do something nice for someone else. That is actually kind of embarrassing because most times people don’t realize how much more thoughtful it is than just saying “You’re welcome!”

In my experience, there’s no real reason why you can’t say thank you in any situation (unless it involves getting something from a dominos machine). It’s much easier than apologising or being humble about it, so take some time every day just saying thank you out loud. You’ll notice that things will get done faster next time, too.

5. Why Do We Say “Thank You” Less Than We Should?

On the surface, “thank you” seems like a simple phrase; we say it to express our gratitude for something that was given to us. But it’s actually much more nuanced than that. It’s used as a way of saying thank you for something that happened in our lives or helped us to fulfill an objective.

A common problem with “Thank You” is that it is said too frequently and not often enough — but when we do say it, it is meant to be special and meaningful.

As such, there are a couple of ways to say “thank you”:

1) Use the word alone: The simplest way to say thanks is to just use the word “Thank You.” This works especially well with small gifts (which on Amazon have no expiration date).

2) Use an adverb: The best time to give thanks is when you have time and energy — ideally at some point after you have just done something productive. Instead of thanking you for your gift, let your Thank You be followed by “It was thoughtful of you.”

3) Swear: There are a few different ways we can do this. Most often, people will add an expletive or swear word between their Thank You and the recipient’s name (e.g., “You’re a good person!” or “You’re garbage!”). This may be acceptable in certain contexts, but should not be done very often (e.g., at work). Other times they may curse out their Thank You directly in front of the person receiving it (e.g., “Shit!”). This has its place but may not work properly here because we need some distance from the recipient.

4) Add two words at the end: Sometimes people will add two words at the end of their Thank You so that they can speak more directly about themselves (e.g., “I appreciate all I received from my parents”).

5) Add three words at the end: For those who really want to get into their feelings about things — whether positive or negative — adding three words at the end could be useful as well (e.g., “Thank me later” or “Sorry”). As always, if you feel uncomfortable doing this, ask yourself these questions before you do so:

Is this going to bother me?

Can I make this funny?

Is this going to

1. The Problem

The problem with the phrase “Thank You” is that people don’t say it often enough. It is far less common than “I love you,” but it is actually a lot more important for people to say.

There are two reasons for this:

1. It takes longer to say thank you than just saying “I love you,” so people hesitate to do it.

2. Saying “Thank You” gets its own reaction: a smile and an acknowledgement of appreciation. Even better, it gets a response that can be used in multiple interactions and that helps build rapport.

Actually, even without these things, the phrase “Thank You” has been proven to increase trust and rapport faster than any other word (it’s really quite simple).

It doesn’t have to be complicated or complicated at all. Just say “thank you” right away! Do it without thinking about what you’re saying because you’ll find out soon enough if it works or not!

This can be anything from thanking someone for their kind words in an email to thanking someone for buying one of your products on the website. You get the idea!

2. The Solution: Say Thanks More Often!

I’ve got a theory: The average person is a generous person. In fact, he’s probably one of the most generous people out there.

And yet, we don’t say thank you as often as we should.

Thanks for the birthday present? Thank you for the dinner? Thanks for not screaming at me. I could probably go on and on and on…

But this has to stop!

My theory is that it’s not because we’re unwilling to do so, but because we don’t know how.

We need to start saying thank you more often in these situations:

– A gift (especially if it’s expensive): “Thank you for the beautiful dress!” “Thank you for your gift” “You have no idea what this means to me.”

– Dinner: “Thank you for letting me stay at your house.” “Thank you for making dinner” “You have no idea what this means to me.”

– Compliments: “I love your new haircut.” “Congratulations on your promotion”

– Getting something wrong: “I’m sorry I didn’t get that one correct” “Your hair looks good today” “Your product is awesome!” “It was my fault that I didn’t understand where that button is…” etc

Our apologies are not just words we say; they are actionable words, like ‘sorry’ or ‘thank you’. We need to be saying them more often. And when we do, it makes us feel better about ourselves and our actions both. And that makes us feel better about life. It’s good psychology!
