Derik Sivers tells us that to not share your goals with other people will make them more likely to be achieved. This is contrary to everything that I’ve ever heard or read…thus I like it (but I’m also a bit skeptical).
There are some very interesting insights into how the mind works that makes this have some credibility for me (watch the video). If true, this would have a lot of implications not only for the motivational work that we do, but for motivation theory in general!
I will need to do some more research on this. Would love to hear your thoughts.
