When you lower your expectations, you are never disappointed.. I quite like this philosophy. Its very difficult to work for something without thinking about the outcome, but when the results do come you are either very happy or neutral about the situation.. You never feel let down.
For example, I had very low expectations of this weekend. But at the end of it, it so happens that I had a great time! But even if it wasn’t a good weekend, I wouldn’t have felt bad at the end of it.
It is a sort of pessimistic attitude towards life though. I could have also made up my mind that this weekend should be amazing, and hence I would have worked towards making it so. Hmmm.. two different ways of thinking about the same thing..
