Life does not always live up to our expectations. Is the problem life, or the expectations?
Christine Hassler, coach, speaker, and host, says it's the expectations.
In fact, she coins a term for that situation and uses it for the title of a book: Expectation Hangover: Overcoming Disappointment in Work, Love, and Life. The book lays out ways to keep the expectations realistic, so the sense of accomplishment is obtainable.
