You can ring my bell

At Maestro Market, the start-up I am working for, we have decided to be noisy about our accomplishments. These are the Cowbells of Victory

We ring them with each new customer that joins the platform. For other smaller successes we have a key chain cowbell.

I think is a great way of keeping the team fired up about accomplishments. It puts some healthy peer pressure on you when you see your buddies ringing it. It brings the team together around one shared meaning...and it is fun to have a cowbell break!

Symbols are that important. I have noticed that when we are disengaged we stop caring about them. Or is it the other way round? We stop caring about the meaning of what we do and then we disengage ourselves?
