It's incredibly easy to loose track of your progress. How much ahead we've gone since the past.
Sometimes it feels like we're not progressing at all. That everything is stable, in the same place. We crave some growth, adventure.
Yet, growth is almost always there. As humans, we're always getting better at something. It may not be the thing we want to be getting better at, but it's there.
Noticing, and then praising somebody's progress is incredibly fulfilling. Both for you, and for the person you're praising. You help them notice they're truly getting better at something.
And it's one thing to praise somebody, but receiving well-deserved praise is even better. When honest and objective, it just fills one with immense power.
Share the power, praise the progress.
