The Essential Part of Goal Setting that Most People Skip

We’re wrapping up our goal setting series with a celebration! Why? Because that’s a critical part of the goal setting process! We know it can feel silly and frivolous to celebrate your own accomplishments, but we’re breaking down why you should do exactly that. Carrie details her tried and true methods for reviewing goals and progress, how it actually helps your brain to do so, and out-of-the-box ways to measure progress even if you feel like you didn’t make any. Then we dive into all the fun ideas for celebration! Dinner, a party, even a special cup of coffee does the trick!
