You may have heard the term managing expectations at some point in your professional career.
The premise is simple: say you made your client $50,000. If they were expecting $10,000, you’re a genius. If they were expecting $80,000, well, you’re a big failure. Managing expectations.
While I think that managing expectations is smart for business, don’t let that kind of thinking creep into your personal goal setting!
Sure, it can be nice not to taste failure over and over again. But let’s not forget that failure is the main ingredient for cooking up something BIG! You just can’t have one without the other.
Plus, if you keep setting weak goals for yourself, you’re eventually going to believe that’s all you’re capable of doing. Really dangerous stuff here.
So dream big! Embrace failure!
