Enjoy it when things are going well when you have met your deadlines and delivered the one thing you have been working on. We often forget to enjoy ourselves and our work when everything goes smoothly.
Joy spreads from the inside out. If you are unhappy with yourself, you can not be happy with anything. Therefore you are your enjoyment officer. Nobody else will enjoy it for you on their behalf. You have to do it yourself. And remember, when you are leading a team, who will if you are not celebrating (small) successes? Your behaviour will set the standard.
Make beautiful choices
“If your choices are beautiful,” he said, “so too will you be.” It’s simple and it’s true. You are what your choices make you, nothing more and nothing less.Epictetus
To be able to enjoy yourself, start with making enjoyable choices. It doesn’t mean that you should only choose things you can like. When it comes to achieving something, enjoying the process is more important than wanting long-term benefits and outcomes.
Taking the time to celebrate and enjoy your successes is crucial in maintaining a positive and productive mindset. As the saying goes, “work hard, play hard”. By being intentional about your choices and taking charge of your enjoyment, you can find satisfaction in your accomplishments and set a positive example for those around you.
Remember to take a step back and appreciate your hard work, and don’t be afraid to let yourself have a little fun. Since nobody will have fun for you on your behalf, you need to do it yourself.
