“To set us on a clear path, it is important to communicate well, at least with ourselves–to know what we want, to know what we mean, and to learn to express ourselves clearly, with as little confusion as possible. If you are confused about yourself, you can expect to be misunderstood by those around you. You have to set your mind straight, and that is a task that no one else can undertake for you.” – Rosemary Altea
Communication is a skill that few of us have developed strongly. We tend to believe that because we know what we’re trying to get across, others will understand also–even though we often aren’t completely sure just what we want to communicate. And when we’re communicating with ourselves, it’s especially important that we do so clearly and precisely.
