Celebrate success before you forget it

Posted by Jonas Sandström on Thu 17 March 2022

After reading Julia Evans post about Celebrateing tiny learning milestones I started thinking about how bad I am at celebrating tiny milestones. Im actually not that good at celebrating big milestones either... Probably due to the fact that when a milestone is reached it dosen't feel that interesting anymore.

But sometimes it's good to pat yourself on the back and realise that what you wanted to do 4-5 years ago might be something you have succesfully achived. Here are three things I wanted to achive and did:

  • Work at a great SaaS company that uses Python
  • Contribute to a big open source project which I use daily
  • Start writing a blog
