Does ‘gratitude’ work at work as well?

Interesting work from HBR building on the research already done into developing an approach to the world based on gratitude.  Apparently, spending as little as 5 minutes a day thinking about what went well – and importantly why builds an improvement in morale and confidence.  Worth a try?  https://hbr.org/2015/09/the-powerful-effect-of-noticing-good-things-at-work

I know some of my coaching clients have extremely high expectations of themselves and are better at seeing what else they need to get done – rather than their successes so far.  This is demoralising and self defeating and I often ask them to keep a ‘never ending list of my successes’.  I’d love to hear if you’ve tried it.
