Assumptions can derail our thoughts and life so easily. And the main reason is we don’t communicate openly and efficiently.

We tend to feel more comfortable with assuming what others think, than engage into a conversation to clarify. Someone says something and instead of asking questions so we can have a clear understanding of it, most of the times we just stand quiet and start to make our own assumptions.

For several and different reasons we “lost” this ability that we had when we were children. Asking question. Don’t start making our own assumptions.

Communication is key. In every single area of our life.

We need to open ourselves to it! We all have our own reality. Work on the gap of what was said and what we assumed. Clarify! See what are our assumptions and what are the facts.

How do you deal with your assumptions?
