I need to stop assuming.

I thought everyone, (yes everyone) understood what was next to be done, and had the same thinking as I am, in one particular project.

Apparently not. Everyone has a different way of thinking and priorities. It will not be the same as mine, not be the same as everyone else.

What makes them on the same page as us, then?

A purpose. Well, we have a different purpose and also plan yes. That is why I need to understand their motivation.

Just today I just realized it, and it affects me. Why am I not proactively reaching out to them and just talk how we can have a win-win? What makes me have a quick conclusion? We’re not even getting into half of the picture yet.
