Great article! I completely agree with you, talking about your work is a deterrent to you attaining your success.
Sometimes, when I have spoken about a goal before completing it, it does feel like a bit of a high, like you have already done something. It is a really odd feeling and you’re completely right, people start congratulating you and appreciate the praise.
I think it can be hard and lonely to not tell people about your goal, but I think it so much more meaningful to show a final product than talking about an idea.
Work on your goal and people will talk about you. Talk about your goal and you lose the time you could have been working towards achieving your goal.
