Any positive achievement should always be enjoyed however, quite often, people do not allow themselves too! Time, location, obliviousness, guilt can all be reason why. There are many different levels of celebration people can indulge in, some examples being:

  • Just being content with that intrinsic achievement
  • Spending extra time with family
  • Having a meal with colleges also involved in the task
