So here is how to manage expectations in business
Let me tell you a story from which we can learn about managing expectations at work. I had a client who was starting her first blog about how to survive as a military wife. The idea was awesome and she was really excited about it! But she wouldn’t publish that first blog post and start the blog. When I asked her why she is not moving forward, her answer was that the blog post needs to be perfect because thousands of people will read it. And here is the hard true lesson about how to manage expectations in business: at first, it will only be maybe 2 persons looking at her blog: her mother and her husband!
So if you’re wondering how to manage expectations in business, I say let’s get rid of those expectations that we’re going to be instantly successful and everything has to be perfect because there’s going to be millions of people who are waiting just to buy our product! That is unfortunately not the case, and you should know that in order to understand how to manage expectations in your business!
The lesson on how to manage expectations still includes that we can dream big, think big, and play big, but it’s all going to happen one step at a time. It’s not going to be an instant, overnight success. We live on Earth and this is the reality about managing expectations in business.
So if you’re new in business and you need to know how to manage expectations, my challenge for your first year in business is to get to 25 thousand dollars, get to 50 the second year, 100 the third year, 250 the next, 500 the next year, and then 1 million the next year! That is the pace I want you to work at and this is how to manage expectations in business! You’re not going to get from 0 to 1 million in one year!
