We should thank more often. Take a moment to realize who are the people that influenced us, that shaped our lives and thank them.
Think about all the friends, all the coworker, all the people that have been an inspiration for you, that helped you get through the rough times, that supported you when nobody would.
Thank them. Thank them not with a physical gift, but with the most valuable gift of all: Your time.
Spend some time with time, write them something, tell them how critical were for your story, show them that you care.
Help them when they need it and ask them how they are doing. Not the superficial question, the deep one. How’s it really going.
Listen to them, listen to them even if their story is seemingly boring, because they showed you a way in the past, and might as well do that again in the future.
