received 8 chocolate bars in the mail.

They were sent to me by someone I partnered with on a recent project – kind of a “thank you and congrats to the two of us.”

You know what I noticed?

Sending a thank you gift when a project is done – especially a gift so nice and unexpected – leaves the other person with a final, extremely positive feeling overall.

First impressions may matter. But it’s the last experience you have with someone, good or bad, that’s the longest lasting – and maybe, therefore, the most important one of all.
