I have been doing pretty good about complimenting people, but this should be something that I am conscious of every day.
I did compliment a friend. He was the first person in his family to graduate from University. I am always impressed when people do this, since I value education and I realize how hard it can be to break out of the established roles. He didn’t seem to think this was a huge accomplishment. I may probe that later on, if the topic comes up again.
There is a group of people I am working with at work who I quite enjoy working with. I need to let them know that I like working with them. I should do something nice for them, like bring in some treats or something.
It was nice because they are good people to work with and they enjoyed the compliment. Good for me! (That’s 3!)
I complimented someone at work who I have only been working with for a month or so. She is level headed, straightforward, funny and gets things done. A great combination. I complimented her to her boss as well as telling her how much I enjoy working with her.
This is definitely becoming more of a habit – and a good one at that.
I comploimented several people at work whom I work with. This is definitely getting easier.
I guess because I spend so much time there, I find it easy to compliment people at work. It would be nice to compliment people on accomplishments or behavior more often in other areas of my life, too.
It was genuine. Work can be difficult at times and my boss makes work easier. I appreciate that!
A friend gave me a ride in her new car. It was very nice and I told her that I liked it. (It’s a PT Cruiser.) She was happy since she really likes her car.
That counts. :)
I met with some people who I work with off and on and had two long discussions. During the conversation, I did say nice things to them but I don’t know if I phrased my comments as a specific compliment.
Charity, your money will be posted later this week.
I don’t think I have accomplished what I wanted from this goal, which is to be more positive about people. So I will give the $100 to charity, after I figure out which one I want to give the money to. I will keep working on this goal and I will make my next challenge shorter (since I can’t figure out how to undo a challenge goal).
I complimented someone at work when I was talking to someone else. I met with someone who I didn’t think I could work well with and (surprise) he has been very pleasant to work with. I told a coworker about this, and a few other people.
