Saying Thank You and taking responsibility when you have been given a great opportunity seems to be dying a slow death. I receive less and less thank you cards or emails both personally or professionally even though I don't think the amount of my giving has decreased proportionally. I have, for instance, on my desk, several trophies and plaques that I am getting ready to send out to acknowledge people who have worked with or helped my office accomplish some of the milestones this year. This, I am gladl to do. People who do great deeds should be recognized. But people who are on the receiving end of good deeds should keep in mind that sometimes all someone wants in return is a simple Thank You.
