In the days when I used to carry a backpack on the regular. I learned a few tricks about mini milestones. It wasn’t until recently that these lessons really paid dividends in my business life.
When walking 10+ miles a day, you have to celebrate making up the hill on the horizon. You have to holler when you pass that big freaking tree on the corner of the lake that indicates the home stretch. It’s also nice, looking backwards to regard & reflect on the journey.
So, I started a small wins channel for my team in our chat. So they could share the little victories, a cool retweet, a break thru. Then, when work is hard & the the results demotivating, we can look back on what we have done well.
