I'm curious, what does celebration mean to you? What is it you choose to celebrate? And what size does the win have to be for you to acknowledge the win as worthwhile?
When I work with teams I love to begin our time together with each person sharing a win for the week. In the beginning some struggle with the concept.
Why would we struggle to call out what we're excited about making progress on?
It could be as simple as we moving quickly and we hadn't recognised a shift forward, or we're conditioned to pay attention to the big stuff, or we're self conscious about seeming like we're bragging. Can you relate?
We leading busy lives today with a list of what we want to be doing. It can feel like there is so little time to accomplish what's important - our goals, and so it is we just keep pressing forward.
The flip-side is when we neglect to pause to acknowledge and celebrate the good things happening, we run the risk of burn out, feeling overwhelmed.
Like breathing, brushing your teeth and feeding our body with good food, acknowledging wins and expressing a little gratitude daily, feeds the heart and the mind.
If you're working with a team, adopting the practice to acknowledge each others wins is like a baton pass in a relay race between team members. It contributes to raise the level of energy to continue to make progress towards completing the goal with the sense of achievement dynamic!
