My favorite philosophy-type book is "The Four Agreements." It discusses four basic principles to live by, one being “don’t make assumptions.” I’m sure you’ve seen this happen in both work and in personal relationships; someone meaning no ill will make an assumption that then creates a misunderstanding. Due to the confusion, someone’s feelings end up being hurt, and it may even escalate into a major conflict. It happens all the time, including to me.
