Recently, a fellow blogger announced that she had successfully paid in full one of her credit cards. It’s always encouraging to hear about someone achieving such a great milestone. In fact, it deserves to be recognized with a celebration!
It reminds me of when She and I paid off the lone credit card balance we brought into our marriage. It took us a long time, and a lot of sacrifice. But when we finally paid it down to zero, we rewarded ourselves and marked the event with an evening out.
In follow up to a posting from a couple days ago about setting goals, it’s important that you recognize once the goal has been reached. Not only does it reinforce the behavior, it serves as a way to acknowledge the magnitude of the challenge and the significance of the achievement.
Congratulations to the couple behind We Like Money! You have my permission to celebrate!
