If you're trying to advance your career, you could be your own worst enemy. Especially if you're a talker. After all, some things are better left unsaid -- particularly at the office.

"In an age when it's easy to overshare everything, from what you're eating for lunch to a personal crisis, it's hard to know when to keep your mouth shut," says Fast Company contributor Lydia Dishman.

According to Dishman, those who want to get ahead in the workplace should put the following topics on their "do not discuss" list:

• Job dissatisfaction
• Job hunting
• Colleagues' incompetence
• Salaries
• Religion and politics
• Offensive jokes
• Sex
• Drinking habits
