Dealing with Expectations Head On – Guest Ben Winter [The Author’s Switch podcast]

You wake up in the morning … late. Your alarm didn’t go off. Why? The power went off. Urg.

You shuffle into the bathroom and find the hand towel on the floor, rather than on the towel bar. Your teenage son didn’t clean up after himself. Urg.

You get to the kitchen, pour yourself some cereal, and sit down with your tablet to catch up with Facebook posts while you eat. Bam! You miss your mouth with the spoon and spill cold milk down your brand new blouse. ARG!!!

What are you to do? Today’s guest, Ben Winter, would say that your expectations — to have the power stay on, to have your son put the towels back where they belong, to know how to use a spoon — were not met and you’re upset. And, he has a system for dealing with those unmet expectations head on.
