When you reach your big goal, your black belt, it’s obviously a time to celebrate and acknowledge how far you’ve come. You are awesome! You’ve done some amazing things! This is a critically important time to reflect on your journey and understand how the success came about. What combinations of people, processes, feedback and progress made this all work?
I firmly believe that we always need a big goal or project to work on. But you also have to give yourself the opportunity to simply enjoy your success. Rest and think before you set your next black belt goal and design your next journey.
