We’re told that we should celebrate the tiniest steps toward our larger goals, but how? Here are 17 ways to celebrate small wins that will keep you motivated in your pursuit of your bigger goals.
You have a hard time celebrating your successes.
Why is that? We work so hard and yet when we accomplish some thing, we barely give ourselves time to breathe before its on to the next goal.
Because we don’t value those successes.
But we should!
According to the Harvard Business Review, the most important indicator in the happiness of a person at the end of the day was whether or not that person made progress in meaningful work. Teh article goes on to say that the big goal acheivements are relatively rare. It’s the small wins and celebrating those that make all the difference.
So, let’s celebrate those successes!
Every day, I fill out a sheet where I write my one thing for that day. The one thing that I want to accomplish. At the bottom, I’m prompted to also write how I’ll celebrate.
And I always draw a blank. How in the world do you celebrate in a way that’s good for you, yet fun? Because honestly, I would love to indulge in a glass of wine everyday but I don’t think that fits into my health goal.
No worries. I scoured the web and created a list of ways that you can both celebrate and feel good about it.
The first idea has everything to do what’s in this box:
A sweet, but good for you, treat
