Super excited because it may not work

Bob Iger envisions Disney becoming the world’s most admired company. He announced this at least a decade ago, but not publicly. We are currently sitting at the #4 spot.

Super excited because it may not work.


Can’t tell you yet.


Prevailing wisdom says when we announce things we sabotage ourselves because we feel a false sense of accomplishment simply from making an announcement.

This false sense of accomplishment reduces our hunger to act and succeed.

Additionally, research shows that people who privately work on something important make greater progress and finish stronger than the “announcers”.

Ultimately, you have to decide for yourself. Beware of the status quo (announcing what you’re gonna do on social media, like the herd always does) and the ignorant belief that progress has been made simply from typing a bold and inspiring announcement.
