I know this post should have been made before 2015 started, but I was too busy adhering to this tip myself. Hence the delay. Nevertheless here is a useful advice that everyone can benefit form.
In the beginning of every year we make a ginormous “New Year Resolutions List” and immediately after doing so, we post it on various social media websites with all kinds of quotations and pictures so that others can see it and “get inspired”. However the latter never happens but you of all people, lose all the inspiration you had since your mind was tricked into being satisfied without actually achieving the goals.
According to psychologists when you inform others about what you are planning to achieve in the future, the satisfaction you get from telling others what your goal is, is mistaken by our brains as the satisfaction that we will get from actually achieving it. So it is always better to keep it a secret until you have successfully achieved your goal. Be silent and let the work speak for you. Ultimately, people will acknowledge your hard work and then you wouldn’t need to go about explaining everyone your plans. Unless, you wanna be Calvin and ignore all the jibber jabber.
What were your new year resolutions this year? (Hint: Use the advice) 😉
P.s This is my opinion based on a study, and maybe completely different from yours.
