One of the most important parts of making real changes in your life is “going public.”
It is impossibly hard to make real, lasting change in your life if you are trying to do it in secret. Going public with your goals is an important step in reaching them.
I’ve said this before:
Tell people you are going to change. This may be the most important step if you actually want to accomplish your resolution. Telling others keeps you accountable. People you have told will ask you how you are doing. Knowing others are checking up on you is a powerful motivation for sticking with it.
The reason we don’t want to tell others is because we would be embarrassed if we fail and others knew it. But you are not going to fail. You have already committed to change no matter what. So go public. Tell some people.
No matter where I’m at, I’m going to twit the results of my weigh in, everything I eat (before it goes into my mouth), whether I made my water quota, and when I made it to the gym.
How are you going public with your goals?
