Motivation and Expectations
Daily Coaching Question #8
Today’s life coaching question is:
Can I maintain my motivation, yet manage my expectations?
I constantly set unrealistic and high expectations for myself. Knowing there is a big challenge in from of me gives me a lot of motivation. Whenever I make my to-do list for Monday, I know that it is unrealistic and that it will inevitably take me a week to get through it. Daniel Kahnaman’s book talks about how these unmet goals are seen as losses, and as loss averse people, having a large amount of these is not psychologically or emotionally healthy. This has lead me to question how I can manage manage my expectations while keeping up the level of motivation I have. So the question pose you to ask yourself also is:
