The Power of Small Wins: Embracing Joy in Startups

Sep 15, 2023 by manish

In my corporate jobs, small victories went unnoticed.

Every day, unnoticed wins occurred. But, I am realizing in the world of early-stage startup, it’s all about acknowledging and celebrating even the tiny things!

✨ The joy when a user voluntarily sends positive feedback.
✨ The thrill of watching someone use a new feature for the very first time.
✨ The rush when someone agrees to be a beta tester for your newest feature.
✨ When we added a small lever for a network effect–and it worked!

Every single one of them is a step forward. These are the moments that give founders so much positive energy!

Acknowledging joy and small wins is what makes the roller-coaster ride fun!
