I hear them every day from clients and boy did I step into the "assumption abyss" this week... and I was reminded of how draining it can be.
JUST ASK: (how do you really know what your boss will say or do unless you ask a direct question and gather more information?)
REMEMBER EVERYONE HAS THEIR "STUFF" (if your friend hasn't called you back, 99% of the time it's has to do with something THEY are going through.)
QUIT THE COMPARISON GAME (Don't assume because Ken and Barbie's life looks fabulous on the outside that they aren't dealing with their own crosses to bear... because we all do.)
Can you imagine the heartache, stress, resentment, lost opportunities, ruined relationships, and sleepless nights that all began with one little assumption?
Choose the courage to be direct, transparent, and wise enough to know when to have faith that everyone is doing the best they can.
I hope you enjoyed today's "gem."
