Celebrate Your Wins

I mentioned in this post a while back that I keep a notebook of the wins I’m excited about from each summer. Some are great big, pat on the back wins and some of them are teeny tiny personal wins.

I like to list the ones that are most important to me so that I can reflect on them later to help keep my work in perspective (especially if I need to balance something that’s challenging me). I also like to include some inspiring quotes, because that’s just the kind of person I am.

So I thought I’d share the last few years entries with you guys to hopefully inspire you to create a win book of your own.

So as you can see, it doesn’t have to be fancy. It doesn’t even have to be neat (or, in my case, have correct spelling! ha!) It just needs to be something you can do to celebrate you!

We all get down on ourselves from time to time, and sometimes it’s nice to remind yourself that you are not, in fact, the worst.

I took care of that this summer too… with a friendly reminder next to my desk.
It’s the little things guys.


But seriously, during this season that’s filled with reflection, review, and reporting make sure to take a moment to pat yourself on the back for a job well done, and maybe even take yourself out for a cup of coffee. 🙂
