If you are a person that MUST have expectations, then make sure that those expectations are POSITIVE. The point of having goals is to motivate us toward a desired result. Expectations can serve the same purpose but expectations and goals are not the same thing. Unfortunately, most humans set expectations rather than goals and those same humans are de-motivated, instead of motivated, by unmet expectations. Therefore, goals are better than expectations but if you must have expectations, make them positive expectations. "Winners make a habit of manufacturing their own positive expectations in advance of the event." Brian Tracy
