Ep100: Stop Missing Milestones (Our 100th Episode!!)

29 minutes

It’s a very special 100th episode, which leads us to this important question: how do we celebrate milestones?

It turns out, this is harder than it sounds.

Why is that important for business?

The act of intentionally creating a ritual in order to pause and feel the weight of an accomplishment, a milestone or an event – in business or in life – can actually help solidify the experience in your mind. It adds punctuation. Yet we are quite bad at celebrating these milestones in any way. Often, we will work incredibly hard to achieve some goal and then we go on immediately to the next thing without ever taking the time to enjoy or celebrate it.  

It might not even be a question of celebrating, but simply acknowledging what the milestones even are. It is important to step back and ask, “where are the milestones of progress?”

They don’t have to even be large milestones – anointed from on high to be worthy of celebration –but the small marks of progress or of doing the necessary work of our business. Because really, it’s all arbitrary. Nothing changes with 100 episodes. It is not memorable to simply record a 100th episode; what makes it memorable is the act of celebrating it. Mile markers woosh by whether you acknowledge them or not. It is the act of pausing – of adding punctuation – that creates the significance.

So what do you do to celebrate wins, large or small? Part two of this episode is your story, and we want to hear.
