is, the best part about succeeding (aside from the success part of it, that is) is the celebration that follows.
You need rituals in place for commemorating your hooray moments. If you don't have them, you're missing an excellent opportunity to revel in your achievement and breathe before the next big undertaking. Plus, you'll create pride-worthy moments that everyone can reflect on and reminisce about with a smile.
When you make the celebration the most memorable part of your hard work and heavy perspiration, you're acknowledging and appreciating the effort, as well as fostering a feeling that it was all worth it. And, most importantly, you're creating an incentive to strive for and a likelihood that your team will go above and beyond the next time you have a big push.
So don't make it all work and no play. If you balance working hard and playing hard, you'll never run out of reasons to celebrate!
