Small Victories

Small victories can make you feel awesome. You should feel awesome. Even if it is a small accomplishment or not one at all to someone else, if it means something to you, celebrate it. Pat yourself on the back and realize that you have done a good job. 

As an example, the other day I was working on an idea for a Flash animation. I needed to make a button for an interactive video. Previously I had no idea as to how to create a button in Flash, let alone create any sort of interactivity. But I read up on it and it was pretty simple. I created my button and coded it to skip to the next frame of the animation. I felt pretty good about myself at that point. I had gained some knowledge, and could use that knowledge in the very near future. 

Revel in these small victories, guys. Even when no one else cares.

  5. Especially with all that effort and after the frustration, you'd feel good to succeed.
