I always knew
I’d be a published writer
some day.
However,
I had sh*t I wanted to do
in other industries first.
I launched new products,
implemented new systems.

And I didn’t talk about
my writing goals.

I wasn’t ready
to work on the writing
and I didn’t want people
to ask about it.
I had other things to talk about.

Seth Godin
shares
another reason
to keep plans for the far future
quiet.

“At first,
it seems as though
the things you declare,
espouse and promise
matter a lot.
And they do.
For a while.

But in the end,
we will judge you on
what you do.
When the gap
between
what you say
and
what you do
gets big enough,
people stop listening.”

Don’t share your plans
before you’re ready
to take action on them.
