That should be a large part of your best practice.
Be up front about what you want
Be honest about what you expect
Whether you’re running a business or building a relationship, do yourself and everyone around you a favor and BE TRANSPARENT about your wants, needs, and expectations.
What do I mean by transparent? Be Open, Honest, Clear
Life is too short to be any other way.
It not only makes YOUR life more difficult but it makes it harder on those around you as well.
It only make you more difficult to work with or live with or please in general.
It only keeps you further from what it is that you really want.
Newsflash! People cannot read your mind.
You cannot expect your expectations to be met if you do not express them clearly.
You have to speak or ask for what you need and want in order to get it. This goes for how you speak to YOURSELF too. You have to be clear with YOU about what you want and what you’re working towards in order to make it into a reality.
Hands down. Across the Board. Be Transparent.
End of Story.
Now go kick some ass.
