Write handwritten notes

In our modern age of Harry and David, Hallmark, and 1-800-Flowers, the simple act of pen-to-paper speaks louder than words. Anyone can throw money at a birthday or a funeral — that’s easy. But, if you truly care, your friends will always remember a note you wrote by hand.

In fact, this maxim is not about writing notes by hand. It’s about going out of your way to show someone that you actually care.
