With great power, as the old saying goes, comes great responsibility. The same can be said for raising expectations. The higher we raise them, the more we become aware of how our effort levels will need to increase accordingly. Thats why you need to make an honest assessment of what you expect in an area of your world and how willing you are to support it with the right levels of effort. A sense of optimism isnt unfounded. Dont fear aiming a bit higher than you expected to.
