Honestly i think skipping the "Tell people about it" phase makes the "Finish project" phase more likely.

I remember reading about a study that suggested that deciding to do something gives much the same endorphin reward as actually doing it, so it's tempting to just take that reward and not put in the work. So if you keep it to yourself, then the really big reward comes at the end.

@Nezchan This has been the case for 99% of everything I’ve actually finished. No one else knew until it was done
