Before the pandemic, I regularly did a variety of physical fitness activities. During the past year and a half, I wasn’t comfortable doing them, so I stopped. A few months ago, I decided I wanted to work toward a new health and fitness routine that focused on outside activities. I set some goals for myself and committed to them. I started tracking my progress, and I shared my goals with others who could hold me accountable.
Today I reviewed some of the data, looking back at the progress I’ve made to date instead of ahead to the day my goals have been achieved. I celebrated some of the little wins I’ve had, which reenergized me.
Setting goals is key to a company being successful. It helps with alignment, focus, and a variety of other things. Working to achieve them is a journey that has its ups and downs. Along the way, it’s important for teams to take time to celebrate the progress they’ve made, even if they haven’t achieved their goals yet. Celebrating those mini wins along the way can help teams stay motivated and give them confidence that they can make it to the finish line.
