Free yourself from the expectations for your next night out, your next date or your next day at work – as long as nothing is expected, there’s nothing for it to live up to, thus giving it endless potential to be nothing short of spectacular.
You end up choosing a career that does not really suit you. Your desire and interest slowly wane and your work suffers for it. You come to see pleasure and fulfillment as something that comes from outside your work. Because you are increasingly less engaged in your career, you fail to pay attention to changes going on in the field–you fall behind the times and pay a price for this.
