While I agree with all the points the article makes, I find the author makes having expectations seem too negative.
She focuses on the complications, the frustration and irritation too much for my taste.
Only in the tiny last paragraph she admits (reluctantly as I read it) that expectations can be positive. But even there she is is quick to limit it: “if you stay flexible, know your priorities”
In my opinion, expectations are the main reason we do things! Outgoing Expectations towards someone/something but in a way also incoming expections towards me.
As I see it, they are key to our motiviation. And being to too flexible can be just as bad as being too stuborn. Too little expectations are as bad as too many.
Again, I agree with all the article says but I generally try to see expectations as a good thing
