The Chief Happiness Officer Alexander Kjerulf is suggesting today that using a more positive email signature, or more accurately something that closely represents what kind of person you are, is a nice touch.
More than that, it could change the way someone reads your emails and even goes about the rest of the day. Think of it as an email smile: it’s positive and contagious and can help someone else feel better about their day.
Currently, my email signature is quite boring. For work-related contacts I’m not familiar with I would use ‘Regards’ and when this relationship progresses, something more like ‘Cheers’. However, something a little more motivational like Mike Wagner’s ‘Keep creating’ is a fantastic step.
It’s a very simple gesture, but can go a long way. How do the Lifehack readers end emails? Are you considering altering it to something even more positive?
