I hear that this sets the bar low but it keeps my expectations in check in such a way that if something doesn't happen, I wasn't attached to it anyways, so no big deal. If it does, it was a nice bonus and something extra (in addition to have said job) that I get to be grateful for.
What's cool is that you're advising others to be realistic and just enjoy the journey. I think that's awesome! :-)
