When you set your hopes way up high, you increase the chances that you’ll be disappointed. So be smart today and try not to pin everything on how a single event or encounter goes. Keep an open mind and let yourself accept each hour as it comes. If you try to control everything and everyone, you will only end up getting frustrated. When people can sense that you’re trying to push things in a certain direction, they will push right back. Focus on collaboration, not total control.
