Celebrate Good Times

Come On!

Is the song stuck in your head now? Sorry(ish) about that. >:)

Now try to focus though. It’s important to make time to celebrate the “wins” in your business. Your wins. Your team’s wins. Large wins. And small wins (maybe, especially small wins). Create a culture of celebration. Not only does this create a positive environment, but it has significant benefits for morale and productivity.

Neuroscience has shown that our brain doesn’t distinguish between big and small wins; all it knows is, “There’s a party going on right here.” The endorphins and other biochemicals that flood our endocrine systems are the same, regardless of the magnitude of the accomplishment.

While some of us are great at celebrating the big stuff, most overlook the benefits of celebrating little victories. That’s a shame, because the big stuff is usually a series of little victories. Which means that the big wins are much more likely to happen when the little wins are celebrated too.

“Let’s celebrate. It’s all right!”
