“Life is largely a matter of expectation.” Roman poet Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus), who coined the phrase “Carpe diem” or “Seize the day,” seems to suggest that from the moment we rise each morning to the moment we lay down to sleep, we are filled with expectation. Yet, others would disagree asserting that it is best to live without expectations in order to avoid painful disappointment. I submit to you that we can neither live without expectation or disappointment. So, that leaves us with the need to learn to manage our expectations and minimize disappointment. That’s what this book aims to do. At the completion of your reading, you should understand the essence of expectation; the levels of expectation; with whom you should place your expectations; and when to stick your neck out in expectation. Further, if at the outset of your reading you subscribed to life with “no expectations,” perhaps at your completion you will be free to more safely expect again.
