When I heard about Lara Hogan’s career celebration process of eating a donut to be “deliberate about marking achievements,” I thought it was a fantastic idea! I tend to focus on all the things that I have yet to accomplish and then make myself feel bad for not accomplishing them.

I like the idea of taking a moment to celebrate an achievement instead of treating it like just another to-do item to tick off. Instead of donuts (since I eat sweets all the time) I’m going with manicures and give me an excuse to do something “fancy.” I wrote a little more about it here but this is my archive page for my manicure/career celebrations!
