We, as humans, have a lot of expectations, we expect things to work a certain way, to go well, or not, depending on the circumstances. We create this preconceived notion of how things will or should happen. And these expectations seriously taint our perception of performance. If something fails to meet our high standards, it's a failure, even if it really wasn't that bad. And if something exceeds low expectations, it's a masterpiece, even if it really wasn't that great.
Often times we expect reality to mesh with our ideas or expectations, and when it doesn't it's a catastrophic event, even if it was pretty predictable had we just let go of those cherished expectations and ideals. We shouldn't let these ideas of what 'should be' cloud our vison of what 'could be'.
It's a great idea to kinda of just disconnect from your expectations for but, and just embrace the here and now, whether your circumstances are exactly how how you'd like them or not, and take a moment to look at things not through a lense of good and bad, but just as things that have happened, and how you can use those things. But you should still hold onto those feelings and opinions, because without it you might slip into a rut of mediocrity.
It's good to have that fuel, that drive, those motives, that's what keeps you going when times get tough, that's what gets you started. It riles you up and gives you that burning passion to create, but it shouldn't entirely consume you, because then you start to lose sight of the big picture. We become so focused on our own perspective that we forget how it fits in, the uniqueness and perspective it contributes to the whole. And that's when tribe culture starts developing.
The tribe is a social concept that describes when people with similar thoughts and beliefs band together and turn against people with differing beliefs. It develops when we lose sight of our bigger picture, of our shared humanity that connects us and focuses on our differences, rather than our many similarities. It breeds a culture of conflict and discrimination, judging people based purely off of their differences. Based off stigma, an expectation of a negative trait or behavior, just because of a difference. Just because of our expectations.
Expectations can shape our reality, but we shouldn't let them blind us. They can be resources to use, opinions to share and explore, but we should always keep an open mind

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
