After hitting on a brilliant new life plan, our first instinct is to tell someone, but Derek Sivers says it’s better to keep goals secret

This short talk, 3min 16sec, explore goal setting in an interesting way.

My definition of a goal is a what by when. As mentioned in the video just stating a goal out loud creates a false perception that it has already been accomplished – Because people forget the WHEN.

Derek shares that when speaking of goals it is important to keep a realistic idea and set a reminder of the what by when…or just keep your mouth shut!
