Table topic Toastmasters question..

To respond to the question “Do my expectations match the level of effort I’m giving?” you could follow these steps:

  1. Reflect on your expectations: Take some time to think about what your expectations are for yourself. Are they realistic and achievable given your current circumstances? Are they based on external factors, such as societal or familial pressures, or are they truly reflective of your own values and goals?
  2. Assess your effort level: Consider how much effort you are currently putting into achieving your expectations. Are you giving it your best effort, or are you holding back in some way? Are there any barriers or obstacles preventing you from putting in more effort?
  3. Compare expectations to effort: Once you have a clear sense of your expectations and your level of effort, compare the two. Are your expectations higher than what your current level of effort can realistically achieve? Or are you capable of putting in more effort to meet or exceed your expectations?
  4. Adjust as needed: Based on your reflection and assessment, determine if any adjustments need to be made. If your expectations are unrealistic given your current level of effort, consider revising them to be more attainable. If you are capable of putting in more effort, consider ways to increase your motivation and commitment to achieve your goals.

It’s important to remember that the process of setting and achieving goals is often iterative and requires ongoing reflection and adjustment. By regularly assessing your expectations and effort level, you can ensure that you are on track to achieve your goals while also maintaining a healthy balance in your life.
