Lesson #1: Shh…..

shush

I stumbled upon this TED talk video a while ago, and in it speaker Derek Sivers said, “Repeated psychology tests have proven that telling someone your goal makes it less likely to happen.”.

I find it very true, at least for me. So before blogging about anything related to the AREs, I’d like to share this useful tip – Keep your goals to yourself. Think about it… instead of keeping everyone posted, changing your facebook status every time you passed or failed a test, it can just come up casually during a conversation one day like “oh by the way, I passed all my tests and now I’m a licensed architect.”… how awesome would that be?!

We all know that taking the ARE is going to be a tough journey… Whatever your goals are, good luck! Just don’t tell me what they are…
