The power of small wins

Had one of those days where all just fits? Your code works right away, your boss nods at you, or maybe you beat that glitch that’s been a pain for days. These times, my pals, aren’t just good days—they’re like magic. Why?

Because in the fast IT world, with so much pressure to climb big new tech mountains, it’s the small wins that keep us cool and happy.

Now, let’s talk about why these little wins are more than a thumbs-up. They’re what drive you forward in work. For new IT folks, the tech world can feel like you’re fixing a twisty puzzle, blind, in a shaking land. It’s hard. And in this storm of new tech learning, hitting deadlines, and getting used to work ways, it’s easy to miss the little good things. But get this: loving these wins can shoot up your will to go on and make you tougher.

So, how do you get this power of liking the little things?

Let me throw some hints your way.

  1. Tip #1: Make it a habit – Start with time at the end of your day or week to think about what went right. Write it down. Did you code with fewer mess-ups? Did you add a great idea in a team talk? Write it down, high-five yourself in your head, and feel proud for a bit. This isn’t just to feel nice—it’s to train your mind to know and do good things more.
  2. Tip #2: Share the good – Shared wins are catching. When you do well, big or small, tell your team. It makes a happy team feel, and it makes others see and like their wins too. Plus, who doesn’t want a bit of friendly cheer? It’s like the gold stars you got as a kid, but with more coffee and fewer naps.
  3. Tip #3: Set tiny goals – Big goals are cool, but they can scare you. Cut them up into small steps. Like, don’t try to be the top security expert fast. Learn one security rule at a time. Every small step is a win and moves you to that expert spot, one tiny goal after another.

Know that your IT work is a long race, not a fast run. Small wins are like the drink stops that help you stay fresh and eager to keep going. And if you hit a block or just want new eyes on how to enjoy your wins, I’m here.
