Over the past few months I've been in a process of designing a website for a client. It's something a little different than I was used to, because I've been on the PR and marketing end of my other boss, not so much the designing part. However, I'm pretty computer savvy and I'd like to think I have a bit of a design sense when it comes to spatial representation and composition.
Well, I had the second to last meeting with my boss today, and things went well and I felt like I showed her a lot of stuff and was able to answer all of her questions. A few hours after I got home, I got an email from her that basically just said thank you, and said that she had forgotten to tell me how impressed she was with all of the things that I was doing with the website.
I mean, damn, that kind of validation is just awesome. A quick thank you can mean the world to someone. Tell them how you really feel, make a difference in their day today. It can go a hell of a long way.
