We have calendars full of tasks and items to be done.  However, we must take time and celebrate achievements.  Whether we have successes daily or rarely, it is worth our time to revel in the positive feelings from a job well done.  No time is better for this bit of “self-indulgence” than year-end review and planning.  Looking forward and planning for the new year is important.  However, we can learn a lot and build confidence by embracing what we accomplished in the prior year.

Why We Celebrate Achievements

One can argue that getting something done is not worth a celebration.  Do you celebrate brushing your teeth or making your bed?  No, we do not.  However, we could achieve a little boost of positive feelings if we did.  There are plenty of examples in daily life.  We see people achieve something that might seem small to us, but they are drunk with joy.
