A friend and coworker had a major good moment today at work.  I knew he was up to the task and I had total confidence in what he would do.  It was a joy to hear him talk about it afterward and to see how good he felt about it.

I enjoy being at that point in my career when I’m not consumed by ambition or wanting things for myself, or where I am threatened in any way by the success of others.  I take great pleasure in seeing my colleagues do well and advance in their careers.  I want to support them in those efforts and cheer them on.  There are too many self-serving folks around ready to throw others under a bus.  We need more people to encourage others, support them and celebrate with them when good things happen.

So congrats, my friend (you know who you are, CS).  It is a pleasure to have you as a friend and colleague.  You deserve it.  Well done!

Leap year lesson #199 is It’s nice to celebrate the success of others.
