Today I wanted to share a story with you. I got onto a coaching call with a client last week and I was talking to her about a situation and I literally said to her, “I feel like everybody can relate and everybody would benefit from this conversation we’re having.”
So I’m going to do my best to re-enact exactly what went down between the two of us. It went something like this: she called me up, she told me,:
“I was working on a project for the last two and a half years and I got to the end of the project and I noticed that the celebration that I was hoping for, that feeling that I was after, that sense of accomplishment, that jump for joy crack open champagne sense that I think we all buy into exists at the end of a very, very, very long process it didn’t happen.”
Now she and I have talked about this many times. We had talked about the importance of celebrating the small wins, and by that I mean every time you check off something from your list, you take a moment just to appreciate and enjoy that fact that you’ve finished yet another thing. Every accomplishment in and of itself becomes an exciting moment. Not champagne popping excitement, but truly genuinely a positive moment so that you are not waiting to celebrate your life until the end of a three-four year project or when you have a child or when there’s a wedding or some major event in your life.
