Why You Shouldn't Tell People About Your Goals - College Info Geek
 
04:32
This partly a video I've wanted to make for a long time, and partly a response to Tom Scott's recent video "Why You Should Write Down Your Goals". Writing your goals down definitely helps you achieve them. Telling people about them, however, is a bad idea as recent research has shown. Doing so creates a "social reality" - a false sense of accomplishment that can make you less likely to actually put in work.

If you want to achieve your goals, motivation isn't enough. How many days have you woken up thinking, "I just don't feel like it?" In those cases, you can attempt to raise your motivation... or you can just do the thing anyway. The latter option requires discipline - which is completely separate from motivation. It is the mental quality - often called willpower - that allows you to practice self control, to work hard even when you're tired, and to lean into discomfort rather than shying away from it. So, if you want to improve your self discipline, and use it to build new habits and achieve your goals, then put the 6 tips I'm going to share with you in this video into action.
