We think people care about what we say we are going to do. Most likely they don’t. Rarely do others congratulate us for something we haven’t finished. There’s a time and place to work in silence and rely on ourselves. Actions speak louder than intentions. It takes a lot of energy to talk about it and justify why we are doing what we are doing. Why not let our success speak for itself once the work is done? Let us refrain from making announcements and giving status so we can save our energy for the real, hard work directed towards results today.
