  1. Debugging Expectations.

  2. Why? So they can be met!

  3. Can avoid disappointment and hard feelings.

  4. Can change future and past experiences.

  5. What’s an expectation?

  6. ex spectare [lat.] to look out

  7. A belief centered on the future regarding an assumed outcome.

  8. The most likely to happen.

  9. Expectation met? Happy!

  10. Not met? Unhappy.

  11. What really happens when we feel unhappy, disappointed or irritated

    about an expectation not met is we’re experiencing…
  12. …the fallacy of contradiction.

  13. What’s a contradiction?

  14. $a !== $a

  15. Something is not what it is?

  16. A contradiction is something that cannot and does not exist.

  17. Contradictions are usually created in our minds when we as

    humans fail to accept a universal event as real and therefore true.

  33. Debugging in detail:

  34. Accept. This is not as expected.

  35. Understand. Why is it the way it is?

  36. Learn. What premise(s) was the expectation based upon?

  37. Move on. Assume possible false premises, check early.

  38. Keep energy flowing. Remember next time when feeling disappointed.

  39. Be happy. Create an expectation that is likely to be

    met.

  40. Debugging expectations can help validating your own premises, make smarter

    premises and come up with expectations likely to be met.
