acknowledge and appreciate

In Try this with Me: Acknowledge and Appreciate Hal Macomber invites us to join him in changing the way we reward those around us:

For the next week take the time to acknowledge or appreciate someone on your project, in your organization, or your circle of family and friends. Take care to be sincere. Appreciate them for who they are not what they did for you or someone else. Rather than say, “Thank you for taking such good meeting notes,” say, “I appreciate the care you give to capturing the conversation we had today.” Do this AT LEAST ONCE every morning and every afternoon. Make a short note to yourself each time you express your appreciation to track that you are doing the exercise.

I suspect that the phraseology and frequency might grate somewhat on the British ear, but I’m willing to give the idea a tentative try…
