[Discussion] How do you like to celebrate professional 'wins'?
Oct 20, 2020 8:47 AM
Growing up, my mother's best friend -- my aunt essentially -- worked for a big bagel company before they went under in the 2000s. She used to travel all over the world opening their stores - she told me her favorite trip was to Russia and her photos were always the talk of her return dinner, no matter where she went.
When she woud complete a store opening, she'd buy herself a beautiful piece of jewerly to celebrate. She loves blues and greens, bracelets and earrings alike. Over the years her fingers and arms grew heavy with her accomplishments - she literally glittered!
It got me thinking: I need to do a better job of celebrating when I have my own professional accomplishments. And I want to bring this idea of celebration to our Ops community. We so often are striving for the Next Thing we forget to stop and say good job, especially to ourselves.
How do you like to celebrate when you have a professional 'win'? If aren't good at it (like me), what would you ideally do? How can we as a community help each other celebrate our wins? Let me know what you think.
