Stop telling people you’re learning to code unless they’re technical and you want them to help you.

When you’re starting out, your goal should be to find a technical mentor or two, not impress your other non-coding friends with the fact that you’ve taken the first step.

I’m a firm believer that if you talk about what you want to do, you never actually do it. So unless you’re talking to someone you hope will be a mentor, close your mouth, put your head down, and keep building.

Want to learn to code? Start here. | Zack Shapiro

I would agree that telling people you’re going to do a thing might actually hijack your goal; there is some evidence to back up this theory.
