Earlier this week we discussed creating a “Never Again” folder to track mistakes. Reader dongola7 offers another great suggestion for tracking the opposite — your successes — with a Praise folder.

At the office, I’ve taken to maintaining a “Praise” folder in my email client. I put all positive emails from managers and customers in this folder for later reference. This serves a number of purposes:
1) It’s a great morale boost. Having a rough day at work? Just read over a couple of those emails.
2) It’s useful for the normal performance review cycle. You can use those messages as a starting point for talking about accomplishments you’ve had since your last review.
3) It’s useful for developing a resume and in the job hunt.
Thanks for the great tip, dongola!
