I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next. —Steve Jobs
To be human is to grow, challenge yourself, and strive to always become better. It’s important to celebrate your triumphs, but dwelling on them for too long can lead to resting on your laurels and jeopardizing your future growth.
After you’re done celebrating your success, figure out what your next challenge is. How can you take your life to an even higher level?
For example, if you’ve successfully lost weight, now is a good time to gain some muscle or improve your nutritional habits. If you’ve put your financial life in order by building a small nest egg, it’s a good opportunity to take it one step further and work on achieving financial independence.
Treat wonderful accomplishments as opportunities to accomplish even more wonderful things, and not as permission to become lazy.
