You’ve just finished creating your perfect ZEN Planner. Now what? What do you say to people who have helped you make it happen? How do you want them to feel about the time they invested in making this project a reality? What will your friends, family, and collaborators say about this wonderful accomplishment?

You’ve worked hard to create a planner that fits your needs, and you’re proud of what you accomplished. You can’t wait to share it with the world. But before you do, you want to make sure that your collaborators feel appreciated for their efforts and contribution.

So you’ve decided to write them a thank you note. Where do you start? What will you write? How long will it take? Will you write one to each collaborator or just the first one? Will you write a formal or informal letter? How about a draft followed by a call to revise?

The answer to all of these questions is “it depends.” Is it an early bird or an established plumber that you want to thank? Does your planner require a lot of attention to detail or can you just dash off a couple of paragraphs? What is the nature of your relationship with your collaborators? Are they friends or business associates?

This article will help you craft the perfect thank you note for your amazing ZEN Planner. So sit back, get inspired, and get to work.

The Two-Way Street Of Creativity

When you’re working with others to create something new, you’re on a two-way street. You’re giving and you’re taking – both are necessary to move something forward. However, you don’t always feel comfortable expressing your needs and wants – even when they’re completely reasonable – because you worry about coming off too strong or selfish. So you bite your tongue, and your collaborators end up feeling unappreciated.

Writing a thank you note to someone who helped you create something new – whether it’s a product, project, or idea – is a tricky business. You don’t want to come off too strongly or seem too much like you’re pawning the person you’re thanking in order to get something you want. But at the same time, you don’t want to seem too weak or ungrateful if you truly appreciate what they’ve done.

The solution: write a truly heartfelt and honest letter to them. Just because they’re giving you something useful doesn’t mean that they own you. You’re still an independent person with your own identity and integrity. You don’t have to be afraid to speak your mind or ask for what you want. But it’s also important to be gracious and appreciative – even when you feel like you deserve something more.

When it comes to expressing your gratitude, you can write a formal letter, make a list of keywords and phrases that describe how much you appreciate what they’ve done for you, or even try writing a poem or song to thank them.

The Power Of Humility

There’s an old adage that says: be humble, but don’t be weak. You want to be humble in your appreciation for what they’ve done, but you don’t want to be weak either. So you compensate for your lack of experience by showing them how much you appreciate what they’ve done for you by being extra polite and humble.

When you’re humble, you don’t just show them you appreciate what they’ve done – you also give them the feeling that they’re important to your success. When you show them you value their opinion, you prove that you’re not just a passive consumer of their work. You’re making an effort to understand their perspective, and you value their guidance and coaching in order to make your dream a reality.

People who are humble and open to new ideas usually end up being the most successful in life. So if you truly want to succeed, it would be wise to be humble and open to new ideas.

Crafting the perfect thank you note for your ZEN Planner isn’t easy. The answers to all of your questions will depend on your particular situation. But as long as you write from the heart and you’re sincere in your intentions, you’ll do fine.
