Make a simple, impactful change with 5 emails.
1️⃣ Email someone you don’t know well and check-in
✔️ Looking for more opportunities? Strengthen your “weak ties” to expand your network. More career opportunities are found through acquaintances than close friends as they usually belong to social groups outside of your inner circle and are more likely to bring you opportunities you haven’t heard about yet. Think about a simple little thing that you can share that will benefit them to get the conversation started.
2️⃣ Send your boss a summary of what you accomplished at the end of the week
✔️ If you aren’t already having weekly/bi-weekly meetings with your boss, be proactive and send a quick email summary to help with productivity and showcase your efforts. When you keep in mind that your boss is also busy managing his/her own career, your weekly summary can become something appreciated and relied upon while also giving your performance constant visibility.
3️⃣ Write an email to a potential mentor
✔️ Whether it’s in your field of work or outside, finding a mentor you admire is critical to your growth, and with the digital age, it’s possible to find a way to reach out to most of them. Most likely your mentor is extremely busy, so take some time to write an attention-grabbing utility subject line, followed by content that shows you did your homework on the person, why you chose them, some unique commonalities, a short and direct request, and last but not least, gratitude.
4️⃣ Send an email of appreciation every morning
✔️ Boost your happiness and improve your relationships with this simple step that takes only a few minutes of your time. Write a short and sweet gratitude email to anyone you can think of thanking, from your friends and family to your coworkers. Studies have shown this simple act can increase happiness over time.
5️⃣ Message a good friend and make plans
✔️ Social media interactions make it easier than ever to keep in touch with people, but when online interactions increase in place of face-to-face interactions, your feelings of loneliness increase. Utilize social media platforms as a tool to increase your in-person interactions to feel less lonely, and make plans to do something fun.
