However, other sources (eg, 1, 2) argue that stating goals publicly can have a counterproductive effect – the social reward of goal-stating itself can be its own ends, reducing motivation for actually pursuing the goal.
Under what circumstances does goal-sharing help or hinder success?
Additionally, is it impossible to achieve those publicly stated goals? For example: If someone has already said their life goals, then what to do? (This is in addition to second part of the question)
There’s a similar question here, but this question is entirely different, as it also tries to find out ways, to achieve our goal, even if someone publicly stated them.
