Dear friends,

Every week, we send you a roundup of the articles, videos, and tools we can’t stop talking about. These are resources we use on a daily basis — things that make our lives (and our work) better and easier. And we love sharing them with you! 

But arguably the most important part of our newsletter this week comes at the very end, after all of the rich content and helpful links. That little section called the attitude of gratitude? That’s where the magic is. 

Because saying thank you matters more than just about anything. 

You can have awesome systems and strategies, but without gratitude, you won’t get very far. More importantly, without gratitude, your life will probably kind of suck. 

Because saying thank you creates joy. 

For the recipient of your thanks, sure. But also for you. 

Turns out, saying thank you makes you happy. 

How awesome is that?!

So this week, as we are WAY in the weeds on Giving Tuesday and Q4 plans, we are pausing to do the most important thing: give thanks. 

Thank you to our incredible clients—you are doing powerful work changing the world, and we are so grateful to be part of it. 

Thank you to our team—you are rockstars and we couldn’t do any of this without you. You inspire us each and every day. 

Thank you to our support systems—you keep us sane and smiling, even when we’re writing 9 campaigns at once. 

And thank you to each and every one of you—you open up your inbox to us every Thursday and listen to our thoughts about work, life, and all the things. What an honor to have you in our community. 

This Thanksgiving, we hope you’ll pause. The hustle (and the length of your to-do list) is real, but gratitude matters. Make time for it. 

And remember, we’re grateful for you. 

Happy Thanksgiving, 
Ian, Allison, and the S+G team
