A moment of gratitude goes a long way 

To those who are celebrating Thanksgiving this week with your loved ones, we hope you have a wonderful holiday and remember to always have gratitude.

With Thanksgiving approaching this week for those of us in the U.S., I can’t help but have gratitude and appreciation on my mind.

Our global Vaulter community continues to thrive – we’re seeing so much support, connection, and care across all our teams every day. I have to say, it’s truly inspiring and something I know myself, and the rest of our leadership team, don’t take for granted.

Last week, I had the opportunity, alongside our CFO Gary Merrill, to visit our Center of Excellence in India. It was incredible to travel across the world to be in-person (finally!) with these Vaulters who are part of many of our business functions. As I returned home this week, I felt so grateful for this trip and the meaningful time we spent with these Vaulters whom I normally only connect with virtually. This trip really reinforced the beauty of Commvault’s global scale and worldwide community of inspiring, driven, and passionate Vaulters. I have so much gratitude for our India teams, as well as all our Vaulters!

Whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, we can all take a moment to think about what we’re grateful for in our lives. Here are three ways I’ve been trying to be more mindful and practice gratitude. I encourage you to try them out too!

  • Share your gratitude with others – As I like to say, sharing is caring! We sometimes forget that a simple thank you can go a long way. Think about how you can thank your colleagues, family, and loved ones more often – if someone does something well, share your appreciation. Tell the person in the moment or send them a message. You never know whose day you’re going to brighten by acknowledging their efforts. Sometimes it’s the smaller gestures that make the biggest impact.
  • Start a gratitude journal or list – Regularly jot down people, experiences, and items that you’re grateful for, whatever or whomever they are. We’re all different, so figure out what format and frequency of writing works best for you. Some people jot down three things a day and others do it weekly. Some of us prefer to do this in the morning and others prefer to do a nightly reflection. Regardless, this exercise will help you stay focused on the positives in your life!
  • Be more present – Let’s be honest, we all have busy schedules and we’re often racing through our days from meeting to meeting. Challenge yourself to be more present so you can really notice life’s moments happening around you. And when you come across something that merits gratitude, take a moment to absorb it as it’s happening, and as I mentioned earlier, share the gratitude! 

Let’s all try and keep gratitude top of mind each and every day. To those who are celebrating Thanksgiving this week with your loved ones, I hope you have a wonderful holiday.
