Why You Shouldn't Tell Anyone About Your Goals

Keeping your goals strictly confidential to yourself or within the bounds of your most trusted few is a smart move everybody should follow. Given the fact that your goals are closely tied with your identity, it’s best to keep it to yourself until the right time comes. A lot of people overshare their goals with strangers or to those whom they want to impress for whatever reasons and it puts them to more harm.

What happens is they prioritize their hunger for self-recognition more than the act of making that goal more than just a dream. This means that  by proclaiming your ambitions, the mind would think you’ve already accomplished your goal because it prefers the good hormones that come out of it than having to work extremely hard (even when that’s what you’re supposed to do). 

7 Important Things to Prioritize in Your Twenties

Setting priorities entails categorizing a task according to importance, urgency, preference, or any other variable you like to associate it with to achieve work efficiency. It also increases your focus and concentration on your personal goals. Setting priorities help you create a vision for yourself — knowing what you want to do for the rest of your life. It makes you more self-aware of your strengths and weaknesses, hobbies, time management, and knowing which of these we value more and which matter to us more. Then our time wouldn’t have to be wasted.
