Keep your goals to yourself
After hitting on a brilliant new life plan, our first instinct is to tell someone, but Derek Sivers says it's better to keep goals secret. He presents research stretching as far back as the 1920s to show why people who talk about their ambitions may be less likely to achieve them.
This talk was presented at an official TED conference. TED's editors chose to feature it for you.
