The “expect the unexpected” philosophy leads to the freedom of choice and the freedom of others people judgment, creating a future full of possibilities, accepting that whatever will be, will be; the future's not ours to see. Yes, but only in a general way. Since it is unexpected, the only way for a thing to be expected specifically would be for you to continuously be aware of every possible thing that could happen -- while presumably living your life as if you were not expecting the sky to fall at any second.

adjective. If an event or someone's behavior is unexpected, it surprises you because you did not think that it was likely to happen. His death was totally unexpected. He made a brief, unexpected appearance at the office. Synonyms: unforeseen, surprising, unanticipated, chance More Synonyms of unexpected. to think that something will probably or certainly happen. : to think that (someone or something) will arrive or that (something) will happen. : to consider (something) to be reasonable, required, or necessary.

An idiom is a phrase that uses a collection of words that are not meant to be taken literally. The phrase, 'except the unexpected', is a phrase that falls into this category.
