Take a moment and think about how many times you complain in a day. Now, compare this with the times you acknowledge someone during that day.
It is quite natural that we complain more and sometimes over minor issues. This is because it is easy to complain, but a certain conviction is required to acknowledge someone.
On the surface, it does not seem that we should bother ourselves to acknowledge others but think about it in your own context.
When you receive the acknowledgement you deserve for your work, it adds to your self-confidence.
Most importantly, it adds to your happiness. Recognition is the best motivation a person can get.
If you decide once, it is not hard to say ‘Good Job’ or a simple ‘Thank You’ to people around you.
