We don’t communicate enough. We make assumptions that the other person understands and sees things the way we do, and what is clear to us is clear to everyone. It never is. We all see things based on what is going on in our own heads, based on our own personal history and our own personal beliefs and biases. We don’t check to see that there is a mutual understanding. We have more ways to talk to each other than ever before yet “lack of communication” is always at the top of the list of things that go wrong when things go wrong.
