Gratitude and celebrating small wins in business to increase happiness and productivity!

How to do it

Since I have been trying to do this more I have come up with five questions that I want to answer at least once a week so I can try to really be happy while being in this journey.

I all answer this business related because that is where I want to feel more thankful and happy about.

The questions;

  • what did I do well today

  • what am I grateful for today

  • what is a small win I can celebrate

  • one compliment to myself

  • one thing I look back at and love about my journey so far

Theses questions also include small wins and some self-compliments. I really get caught up in all the things that don’t go well or things I haven’t done yet.

To get past this I want to celebrate some small wins so you keep looking towards the things you did do and achieved.

Here are my answers from this week;

What did I do well today?;

I started working right away and went through my to-do list super quick. I felt super productive and did some extra work!

What am I grateful for today?;

The friends that I made on this journey that keep supporting me and make great business buddies.

What is a small win I can celebrate:?

Working on this for 6 months without giving up and even seeing some process.

One compliment to myself;

I think I showed a lot of persistence through the last six months and that is something I want to be as a person.

One thing I look back at and love about my journey so far;

How it has enabled me to draw and create more than I did before.

I would love to hear you answers in the comments below!

I also made a worksheet that you can print out that has these questions four times so you can print 1 for an entire month! Find it in the library.

  • Love this Sofie! As a relatively new creativepreneur myself, it’s so easy to feel like you don’t have anything to celebrate when you have reach “success” yet. I love this reminder to celebrate the small wins and am going to try to incorporate it into my work life, thanks!
