  • The bestselling author returns with his biggest book yet in which he teaches us the secret to living a happier life: get rid of as many expectations as possible--of ourselves, our future, our relationships, our career and our family
  • Expectations are the secret software, running on the hardware of our minds, controlling our emotions, decisions, and actions. But modern life and unrealistic expectations can cause us to feel like we're not doing enough, earning enough, acquiring enough-- that we're simply not enough. Franklin shows that, if we can set our expectations, we can set ourselves up for success. He gives readers the tools they need to properly set our expectations: analyzing our expectations to decide if they are realistic, and them communicating them. Once you learn to let go of expectations that weigh you down, you can set the stage for the life you've always wanted. -- adapted from jacket
