We sometimes confuse our motivation to pursue goals or new adventures with our desire for praise. These questions help decide whether you truly want to run a marathon, travel the world, go on a meditation retreat or (insert activity here):
1) Am I more excited about the achievement/activity or about announcing it?
2) Would I still want to do it if I couldn’t tell anyone about it?
I’m not criticizing broadcasting accomplishments. Please do! Many of us are cheering for you. The questions are merely tools to help clarify your true aspirations.
