Manage Your Expectations

Imagine you’re in the audience and the announcer says, “Please give a warm welcome to the FUNNIEST MAN IN THE WORLD!”

Wouldn’t you have really high expectations? Wouldn’t MOST PEOPLE have really, really high expectations after hearing that introduction!? I know I would.

If you’re sitting in that audience and the comedian comes out and does a good job is it possible that the audience would say he was just ok? Because the expectations are so high after the announcer gives that introduction, it’s almost INEVITABLE that the audience would be disappointed. Who could live up to that?

We don’t want that to happen with OUR EXPECTATIONS OF tsu. That’s why “Manage Your Expectations” is the title of today’s post.

Don’t expect that the financial reward of tsu will just keep going up every day (or even every week).

What we really want is to understand how to best use tsu. There are other benefits to tsu that I won’t go into today, nevertheless, I just wanted to remind you that money is not the only thing we can get from tsu. Money can be ONE way of keeping score if we think of tsu as being like a game.

Here are the results of my tsu game this week and two previous weeks:

Just one impact I’ll mention:

IF I continue to add friends at a similar rate then I will have 5000 friends in two weeks or less. My expectation is that WHEN I reach 5000 friends, whether before or after Christmas, I will then start adding followers at a higher rate. Time will tell if that is true.

Now for what many of you are maybe more interested in – the money.

These results are for the week of 12/01/14 through 12/07/14. Please remember that these numbers are posted to my account in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), so last night was the 8th of December and the results posted last night were for the 7th of December.

(I’m writing this on the 8th of December, which will be over in less than three hours based on GMT. Everything clear? LOL)

12/1
$0.41
12/2
$0.55
12/3
$0.64
12/4
$0.67
12/5
$0.67
12/6
$0.75
12/7
$0.64

You can see that I hit a high of $0.75 on the next-to-last day of the week. IF I had expected that the next day I would do better, that is, if I expected that every day the numbers would continue to climb higher, I would be disappointed. By managing my expectations I don’t get bothered when one day brings lower results than another.

What I can do is to seek to learn what I can do to improve my results. One thing that seems to be true is that shares count for more than comments or likes. That means that you and I must create our own content. If I share someone else’s content because I see a beautiful picture from say @Zaibatsu or @Rolla or a quote I like from @beNICEmedia, that’s really good AND we should be doing that. BUT, when WE create something and someone else shares it, I believe that’s worth approximately $0.05 to us. I can’t promise that, and it may be more or less, but that’s what it looks like to me.

Here are a couple Christmas-themed links to posts that I have created that I hope you will share. I would appreciate it. If you believe that I am creating value for you by writing this blog, then it would be wonderful if you shared posts that I have created.

Finally, how does this week’s financials compare with previous weeks?

I have included my complete financials since I began with tsu because I believe I made some small errors in a previous post. You can see that in the beginning I was getting ZEROS because I wasn’t putting in any or very little effort after enrolling with tsu.

My overall total right now is:

$8.25

This week’s total is:

$4.33

That’s an increase of over 78% versus last week! Put another way, this week’s total is over 178% of last week’s total. My apologies if percentages are not your thing. I believe that not understanding math can hold people back. Ask a friend who knows math better if they can explain it to you better. OR, trust me, this is REALLY GOOD NEWS! Hopefully, my numbers (and yours) will continue to grow. Again, it’s not magic. Do the work and learn how to make adjustments and your numbers will improve as well.

Last week’s total is:

$2.42

Two weeks ago:

$1.39

Whew! Remember to share other’s content 8 times in 24 hours and see if you can share your own content 28 times in 24 hours. I’ve come close to the total of 36 shares, but I haven’t done it yet. I want to do it at least twice this week.

Have a great day!
