Do you tell people about your goals?
When you do, it helps you clarify what you want. It also builds in a bit of accountability. If I tell my best friend about a goal, she is definitely going to check up on me to see how that's going. I'd better get it done.
If I am hesitant to tell her about a goal, it could mean that I'm not yet taking that goal seriously. Or, maybe it's not yet clear what the goal should be.
Take your time enough to get your goal right.
If you catch yourself changing your goal when you tell people about it you should probably change your goal.
You might as well work on what is important to you.
