It is also mightier than a text message, an email, a BBM, and an instant message.
My desk drawer is filled with handwritten notes from clients who have taken the time to write me something. I pay attention to them. I can’t delete them that easily! I also usually read a handwritten note more than once.
The next time you want to get someone’s attention – write them a letter. In addition to the message in the note, it sends them the message that they are important to you. Take the time out of your day to put pen to paper, seal it in an envelope, and have it delivered to their door. It will be effective.
