We all face setbacks we cannot control, yet we often forget that we have a choice about how to handle those setbacks. The Expectation Hangovers we feel in the wake of disappointment, failure, or loss can become doorways to tremendous opportunities and life-changing gifts.
Managing your expectations is not about lowering your standards. Master coach Christine Hassler explains how to pursue the right goals for the right reasons and also what to do when things don’t work out as expected. By the time you finish this book, you’ll understand why setbacks happen and have a clear course of action to pursue your dreams. – Christine Hassler

You can’t expect yourself to do it all. In fact, give yourself a break & schedule it into your day. Take 5. Take a load off. Breath.
Expecting to be able to do it all is just not a true statement. Learn now to release that expectation; “I can do it all.” What you can expect from yourself is “to do your best”. That my friend is good enough. You are enough and you’ll get done what is most important to you, leave the rest. You got this!
I was recently reading 52 Ways to Live a Kick-Ass Life: BS-Free Wisdom to Ignite Your Inner Badass and Live the Life You Deserve by Andrea Owen. Awesome book I highly recommend this read. On page 95 of Chapter 21 she addresses “Managing your inner critic.” That total bitch voice that tells you all the things you can’t do, be, wear, see, hear, etc. As Andrea says she believes these voices are addicted to suffering. Keeping you small and in fear of the wonderful life you are really suppose to live. How awful BUT true. Mine keeps me in fear each day, undermining my confidence and just plain holds me back. WTF?
Have you found GTD by David Allen a little to overwhelming of a productivity system? Well this book is for you. Zen to Done or “ZTD” is a wonderful book that helps you get the most out of your time spent on planning. (more…)
