Shhh! Can you keep a secret?

Updated: Feb 14, 2023

We all love to talk about our future plans, especially when it comes to exciting new projects we are working on. But in the digital age, it's easy to fall into the trap of bragging about our upcoming projects online. While it may seem like a harmless way to share the news, this behavior can have unintended consequences. In this post, we'll discuss why it's better to avoid bragging online about upcoming projects.


Invites Unwanted Competition

Nowadays, information travels quickly. If you boast about a project online, it's likely that your competitors will take notice. They may start working on similar projects or even try to steal your ideas. By avoiding online bragging, you can reduce the risk of unwanted competition and keep your ideas safe.


Jeopardizes Confidentiality

When you boast about your project online, you may inadvertently reveal confidential information that could compromise the success of your project. (I was once a freelance video producer for the Intelligence Community.

We couldn't talk about ANY of our projects!) It's always better

to be cautious and keep confidential information to yourself until the time is right to share it.

In conclusion, while it may be tempting to brag online about your upcoming projects, it's best to avoid this behavior.


By being mindful of your online presence and avoiding boastful behavior, you can protect your reputation, reduce unnecessary pressure, and keep your projects and ideas safe.


Creates Unnecessary Pressure

By announcing your project publicly, you are essentially putting yourself on the spot. People will expect you to deliver on your promises, and if you fail to do so, it will reflect poorly on you. Bragging online about upcoming projects can create unnecessary pressure that can negatively impact your work and personal life.


But, yes, we've got some cool stuff in the pipeline. :)
