Recognition and gratitude – Roped Club



What do you think the world would be like if each of us committed to verbally recognize one person every day? As the season of Thanksgiving approaches I have a challenge for you. The challenge is a lifelong commitment to verbal recognition and gratitude. With that in mind, I have started a club inspired by an insightful Executive at CUNA Mutual Group named Dan Meylink.


The club is named the ROPED Club and I am inviting you to join. It is free of fees but not free of responsibility. ROPED stands for Recognize One Person Every Day.


If you want to join here are the rules:


You MUST purposefully recognize one person verbally every day for the rest of your life. They can be anywhere at anytime. Just commit to verbally recognize one person every day. That’s it! It’s that simple! Our world is so fast and busy that seldom do people receive recognition.


What is purposeful recognition?
The four tenets of Purposeful Recognition are:


Be Specific: Identify with certainty the recognition is about something they did.
Be Appreciative: Show a genuine interest and be clear that it mattered to you.
Be Personal: Don’t phone it in. Personally recognize the other person.
Be Immediate: Never let opportunities pass you by! Do it as soon as possible!


If you would like to join the ROPED Club, here are the rules: you MUST purposefully recognize one person for the rest of your life. It can be anywhere at anytime; just committing to recognize one person every day is the goal. That’s it! It’s that simple! Our world is so fast and busy that seldom do people receive recognition. It’s all about them!
