If you’ve ever worked at a growing company you know what this means.
We’re always waiting to “get there.” To reach a certain revenue level, a certain team size, certain profitability… it’s generally something twelve-to-eighteen months out.
It’s something we’re always holding our breath for, waiting to celebrate.
Guess what? Wherever you are, you’re already there. You made it to today.
You’ll never get there, because “there” is a moving target. This is the fruitless pursuit of perfection that eventually burns people out. To a point it can be inspirational, but eventually it becomes arrogance and undermines the greatness your team has already accomplished.
Celebrate small victories now.
