E535: Managing Expectations

We ver estimate what we can accomplish in a year and underestimate what we can achieve in ten years.

 

 

  1. We all have expectations and goals
    1. We have expectations of what we can achieve
    2. We have expectations of what others can achieve
    3. We have expectations of success
  2. We need to manage them properly
    1. We often set unrealistic expectations
    2. We expect things from others that are unrealistic
    3. We get caught up in instant gratification
  3. We need to adjust the process
    1. Understand that life is a marathon – things take time
    2. Small, consistent growth yields the greatest results
    3. Focus on the actions not the results
      1. Don’t get down when you miss a target unless you didn’t take action
