Almost every business article you read about goal setting suggests that you should tell anyone and everyone what your personal goals are. The reasoning is that the more people that know your goals, the more people you need to prove to that you can actually carry out that goal. Having lots of people who are ready to laugh at you when you don't reach your goals sounds like a great motivator for staying on track.
An interesting Ted.com talk by Derek Sivers discusses the idea that announcing your personal goals to othes may actually make you less likely to keep working towards those goals. It was a very interesting idea and I wanted to share it because it goes against what most motivational speakers are saying today. The video is below, check it out and let me know what your thoughts are.
