Don’t say it
There are studies that show, that when you broadcast your intentions to do something, you decrease the liklihood that you will ever get it done. Worse – you’ll feel good (not) doing it.
I’m the prime suspect here. The culprit.
Everyone knows “I am going to run Boston someday!”. As a matter of fact, I can’t keep my mouth shut about ANYTHING I’m doing.
But I would really like to do better at keeping my nose to the grindstone and working in silence!
