Ever wonder why some of our best memories come right at the end of a get together, why some of our best memories involve loud laughs at the doorstep of a friend’s place?
Research on happiness has repeatedly revealed that peaks and ends define our memories.
For your next catch up with family/friends, this translates to a nice welcome hug (bonus), a lot of fun during the meet, and, most importantly, a tight goodbye hug after a great doorstep chat.
So, don’t rush the goodbye. That’s what you will remember.
(Applies just as much to any business meeting. The “feeling” at the end is what your boss/team/client will remember. Schedule some time for a great goodbye..)
