How Have You Rewarded Yourself Lately?
Have you paid yourself lately?
This isn’t just the “treat yourself” idea. Treating oneself is one thing. But recognizing yourself for a job well done and meeting that effort with a reward is a much better idea.
It’s more ceremonial.
This Is Born From Self-Reflection
I admit I spent a long time grinding away in life.
I used to believe rewards only came at the finish line and not along the way. But that’s no way to live. If we don’t enjoy taking a pit stop now and then, the drive is going to suck.
And you won’t keep up with a journey that sucks!
Rewards Can Be Small
It doesn’t have to be a party for all your friends.
It can be a break, promising yourself 15 minutes of quiet to read a book or anything that feels like a reward. For me, it’s hardest to come up with an idea for a reward. How do I know what I will find rewarding after I complete another 90 days of shipping?
But I’m 30/90 so I guess I better figure something out!
