Every April when I drop my tax returns into the mailbox I do a little victory dance.  People look at me funny, but I don't care.  I like to celebrate small victories.    When I book a new voiceover client or get a glowing review, I throw my arms up and jump up and down a few times.  Why not?  It feels good.  It allows me an opportunity to acknowledge my accomplishment.  And in a way, it motivates me to keep working hard.

Business experts say rewards are helpful to keep us motivated.  When your kids get good report cards, you take them out for ice cream or some other favorite treat, right?

As it's tax deadline day, I thought I might encourage you celebrate completion of your returns.  Especially if you're a procrastinator.  If you've already mailed or will be sending in your tax forms today, congrats!  Well done!

How might you reward yourself?  A manicure?  Fancy coffee?  Ice cream?  Flowers?  Please share in the Comments section below.
