Quarter your compliments
Here's simple but effective idea for boosting your own—and your co-workers'—job satisfaction. Place four quarters in your left pocket every morning. Each time you offer a genuine compliment to another team member, move a quarter from your left pocket to your right. The goal is to switch all four quarters to your right pocket every night before you go home. (No cheating by spending the quarters.) This activity reminds you about the importance of positive reinforcement.
