I have a “thank you” folder in my work email to remind me of times I helped someone out and they were genuinely grateful.

Helps when you get your annual review, too


Also screenshots are good to grab these as well. Take a screenshot of anything good that has happened. Doesn’t have to be anything big and not limited to email.
