Having realistic expectations is important for just about anything.
Have you ever heard someone rave about some restaurant to the point your mouth watered? You couldn’t wait try the chili-cheese dog or their famed biscuits and gravy. When you arrive to satisfy the craving, you come away a bit disappointed since you were expecting the most awesome meal ever.
Having wild expectations can lead to much disappointment whether it’s something as simple as a meal at a restaurant or a day out on a fishing charter.
Being disappointed at something simple like a meal isn’t that big a deal – you didn’t spend a lot of money, so no big loss.
