clear communication

We are so often guilty of this: expecting people to do something without clarifying exactly WHAT they're supposed to do. I am one of the primary offenders. "Well of course you should have done what I meant...not what I said."

With your kids, your spouse, your co-workers, etc...don't get angry when they don't meet your expectations. Often they have no idea what you expect.

And then of course there is the whole subject of the unrealistic and bondage-inducing expectations we place on others...but that is a subject for another day.
