Learn From The Moose

Disappointment hides in the shadows of unmet expectations.

Alternatively, you’ll find a spark of delight upon receiving something you didn’t expect.

(Barring it’s not a tragedy, like thinking you’re going to In-N-Out and it’s literally anything else.)

For example, I just learned a moose can hold its breath for up to a minute feeding on plants at the bottom of a lake.

Imagine canoeing and a moose pops its head up from under the water.

I’d loose my mind.

Less so now that I know it’s a possibility, but still.

If I thought a moose had a much longer ability to hold their breath I’d be disappointed.

How are you setting expectations?

Are they setting people up for delight or disappointment?
