Make a habit to give feedback

📢 Are you the silent kind?
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
If you like how a company or a person is doing something.⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
👉Take a min to let them know.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
It takes weeks to implement new systems and months to see how its performing. If you see a new product or service as an IG post, it is probably taken months of work to launch.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Your feedback is like a pat on the back. It brings a smile & sigh of relief.⁣ Positive recognition.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Many years ago, I remember someone emailed to tell me they loved my website and how intuitive it was. Since most Islamic sites seemed outdated and "lacked a modern approach" at the time.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
I didn't have budget to hire a developer and the DIY websites weren't as advanced as they are today. So my only way of measuring effectiveness of my design and user experience layout was through performance.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
The kind words by a few individuals gave me the reassurance that I was doing something right.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
As Muslims, we're not always as supportive to each other. Maybe its slowly improving with our generation.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
If you speak to a Muslim owned businesses and their experiences during Eid at the peak of the pandemic with lockdowns and shipping delays, you wouldn't believe the types of emails they received 😔⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Trust me, anyone who looks like they have it all figured out.. doesn't. Because with growth of a company comes more learning curves. More systems and risks. Sure they know the path better but there's always a new territory they're exploring.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Maybe you like the experience when you ordered, or the packaging, or the gift, or a promotional/ instructional video.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Randomly drop in and say "I love watching your cake making process, it's so therapeutic".⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
👇Business aside, make it a habit to encourage each other.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
"I love how you're raising your kids"⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
"Love how you're always smiling and staying positive."⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
"I'm amazed at how you cared for your sick parent. You're so brave"⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
We underestimate the power of a good word. Kindness can transform someone's darkest moment. We don't know what anyone is going through.⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Do good & good will come to you
