One of the most important things we should do before taking a job is to define clear expectations.
Often, the end picture is blurry for individuals on both ends of the spectrum — and this becomes a perfect recipe for misunderstanding and chaos.
Humans are wired to over-promise. You take up a project wanting to shoot for the moon — no matter if you haven’t still figured out where you will get the fuel from.
Why? Because it feels good. The feeling of achieving an ideal target is a state of bliss. But unfortunately, moment driven passion & emotion always get the better of us and don’t necessarily project reality.
What can we do to combat this?
Set the right expectations. Under-promise; over-deliver.
Don’t show off every day, or you’ll stop surprising people. There must always be some novelty left over. The person who displays a little more of it each day keeps up expectations, and no one ever discovers the limits of his talent. — Baltasar Gracián

We haven’t really understood love. It’s sometime a weird feeling that keeps you up at night or sometimes a rainbow colored door that opens up world of joy.
We don’t have it figured out. It’s erratic. It’s irrational. It’s there one moment and at the other, we don’t feel its presence. Love is complicated. It’s invisible and it’s chaotic.
Love is madness.
People who are in love are mad — they know about uncertainties but risk their lives for one person , that one human who they believe in whose reality they will find a home.
And these people are insane. They don’t have it figured out, yet, they love. They perish, but they believe. What is it? What’s the law of love? Why haven’t we figured it out yet?
Because maybe we aren’t supposed to. Maybe some things aren’t meant for discovery but only for an act of journeying through the chaos they are. Love is living each day with our demons and sometimes, falling in love with them.
