In reflecting on a number of conversations and interactions I have had with people over the last couple of weeks, I have come to the realisation that I have been making numerous assumptions. Assumptions such as my message being crystal clear, of my requests being accepted and actioned, and unfortunately it has become apparent, that they have been anything but. It feels as though I have been on a completely different planet. And my epiphany has been that this is my fault. I am 100% responsible for my communication, and therefore must be 100% responsible for the responses to that communication. I cannot afford to make assumptions. And neither can you.
Making Assumptions Is Dangerous
