Great expectations

it’s an issue dear to Charles Dickens and Seth Godin. This is how the latter sees it.

 

​Nothing will ever be good enough.

But the alternative, low expectations, is sad indeed.

The internet (like life) will always disappoint us. It will always be too flaky, too slow, too insulated. It will always have errors, hate and stupidity. And we had such high hopes, the promise was so big.

This is true of just about everything, and it opens the door to the realization that we can be brokenhearted or we can use those high hopes as fuel to make the next cycle even better.

Some people persist on grading themselves on a curve, ensuring that they’ll never be disappointed in what they create or in the opportunities they pass by. It’s a form of hiding, not an accurate insight into what you’re capable of. You deserve better than that.
