[Pronounced, "lawn-yop," noun, meaning an extra or unexpected gift or benefit]
Have you received a gift today?
You have now! A "Lagniappe" is a beautiful thing, an unexpected gift or benefit, given in appreciation, with no strings attached. It is icing on the cake, gilding on the lily, a thirteenth egg.
Why celebrate? 3 good reasons: (1) Celebration is a way of honoring and appreciating the good things that come your way, (2) Celebration creates more of a good thing, and (3) Celebration makes life more fun!
Don't worry if you're not that good at celebration, there's hope! According to Michael Hyatt in his podcast episode, "
The Fine Art of Celebration,"
celebration is a skill you can learn.
Why should you care about celebration? It's all about programming that powerful computer in your head to work for you.
Rewarding the behavior you want reinforces it in the brain
, so the brain gets onboard with producing more of that desired behavior! This is true of your team's brain, if you are a leader, and it is true of your own brain, as you work toward your heart's desires.

Essential Strategy #4: Smart Communication
COMMUNICATION SKILLS ARE YOUR #1 promotability factor, more important than your education, experience, popularity, ambition or tenacity (Harvard Business Review). Although the majority of their work involves some form of communication, very few professionals invest time and effort into developing communication skills, defaulting, instead, to the skill level they learned early in life. "Goo goo gah gah," only gets you so far. Set yourself apart with smart communication skills that:
- Build alliances,
- Focus on specific desired outcomes,
- Strategize at least 3 steps out,
- Give up "Being Right" in favor of "Being Effective,"
- Get you more of what you want so you beat burnout.
