Be Vocal With Your Goals

Whether you’re trying to make more time for yourself or whether you’re trying to lose weight, one thing you’ll often find yourself wondering is whether or not you should tell your friends your new goals.

On the one hand, telling friends goals is a great conversation topic, it’s fun to share things that are going on in our lives and we might be able to get advice from them – especially if they have recently given up smoking! Having your friends and family in your corner ensures that they’re not going to inadvertently make your life more difficult – by offering you that cigarette for instance or by inviting you out to lots of events when you’re trying to cut back.

The Downside of Sharing Goals

But there is also a downside to telling people your goals and you need to be careful of this. Studies actually show that in some cases, telling your goals can make you less likely to achieve them. This is particularly true for things like eating more healthily or giving up smoking.
