Expectations and Plan B...
Expectations and Plan B.
Expectations: The act or state of expecting the prospect of future good; that which is or may fairly be expected: the degree of probability; the value of something expected; the prospect of fortune or profit by a will.
Or so says my copy of the Chambers English Dictionary,my trusty companion for a couple of decades or more.
During the early part of our lives there are the expectations of our parents as we begin to journey through life. These expectations can or may change depending on our own successes and achievement.
Parents have a plan in their minds which they hope their children will follow. Of course this never happens. Coaches and managers of sporting teams have game plans, which may or should be changed if things aren't actually true to plan. You often here about Plan B of a successful side, or the lack of one in an unsuccessful one.
And so with life itself: Whether we lived up to the expectations of our parents or not, we will have our own set of expectations when we become parents ourselves. So we too have our own plan in our minds, and as I just stated above there is a need for a Plan B as well.
