´ Expectations without the Sting -
January 19, 2015

You have heard of SMART goals? Specific, measurable, actionable, realistic

and timely? This advice makes a lot of sense however you are also prone to disappointment. Sometimes good advice clashes with other good advice. The theory of mindset maintains that it is healthier in the long run to aim for mastery instead of specific incomes. This means that you take a long-term point of view and aim to get better whenever you practice. You value the journey and not just specific feedback, that you are doing well. Furthermore it’s better to aim for goals which are completely in your control (eg. study an hour a day) than to aim for a specific outcome (eg. a grade).
