Talking about projects

Filed under: — Greg @ 1:53 pm

I was unaware of this, but it seems that announcing your plans makes you less likely to accomplish them.

As I see it, you could use this knowledge either as a tool to foster procrastination, or a means to keep yourself driven to get things done.

In retrospect, my own behavior with respect to projects totally bears out these findings.

    This has actually been proven true with me for a while. I can never talk about something if I want to do it.

    Hi. I just saw your ski animated can. I love Ski also. I went to college at McKendree in Lebanon which is near Breeze.

  3. Really? Okay, I agree that a “new” idea should be silent.

    An idea in its embryonic state can be better served to keep it under your hat for a while.

    I also think WHO you talk to matters. Telling that bone-head that says you can’t do ANYTHING is probably not the person to talk to.

    I think we need some more, well rounded research on this.
