Tricks highly successful people use to get things done
Beyoncé Knowles — Don't talk about your goals
It's easy to fall into to the trap of gabbing about our goals to everyone who will listen. After all, once your plans are out there, you'll have to follow through, right?
Wrong. Talking too much can actually hurt your chances of success.
Business Insider contributor Daniel Welsey described the problem with talking too much about your dreams: "Communicating your goals tricks the brain into thinking you've already achieved them."
So, basically, the more you talk about your plans, the less motivated you are to actually get stuff done.
We should really be more like Beyonce, who famously released a full album out of the blue in 2016. Queen Bey didn't sit around hyping her work and hawking her new music. She let the album drop and then basked in the commercial success and critical accolades.
