It’s an easy trap to fall into.
I’ll keep it to myself. I don’t want to be all ‘show-y’ about my goal. I’ll just quietly get on with it and people will see when I succeed.
All of the research suggests that you are many more times likely to achieve your goal if you share it with others. Choosing who to share with is important, but you must share it if you want to give yourself the very best chance of success.
We are loving Stickk – a great resource for helping with this. You choose your goal, nominate a ‘goal referee’ and can even enlist the help of supporters. They reckon this at least doubles your chance of success.
We also run a Goals Club Facebook group where you can share your goals and be part of a goal setting community.
Whatever you do, nullify the curse of the stealth goal and get someone else on your side.
