It’s easy to forget that the person you are speaking with doesn’t know what you are thinking or what has happened earlier to you. Because we forget this sometimes, we tend to forget to include details and make the assumption others have the same knowledge, the same background that we do. The problem is, they don’t.
If you want something done, be as precise as possible because while you think you are saving time upfront but being somewhat cryptic in your request, the reality is, it’s going to take more time in the long run
Be specific, give people the background they need to get the job done and it will be easier for all concerned.
Have a great day!
