If you’re losing motivation to do something, you may be talking about your plans and goals too much to other people. While keeping people posted on your work never hurts, it could sabotage your own motivation.
Entrepreneur and programmer Derek Sivers recommends keeping your mouth shut when it comes about your future plans and goals:
Announcing your plans to others satisfies your self-identity just enough that you’re less motivated to do the hard work needed.
In 1933, W. Mahler found that if a person announced the solution to a problem, and was acknowledged by others, it was now in the brain as a “social reality”, even if the solution hadn’t actually been achieved.
Instead of talking about it, just start making moves. Keep your progress and momentum to yourself. Don’t announce it, don’t share it in a status on Facebook, and don’t Tweet about it.
Don’t give your ego the satisfaction of attention until you actually complete your product or goal.
