Motivational Power Quote

 

Don’t Assume - Know    

“Assumption is the mother of mistakes.”

Angelo Donghia, interior designer    

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

 

Don’t assume – know

 

Assuming is guessing, knowing is to understand.

 

When we assume in business we can quickly paint ourselves into a corner of mistakes in our thinking. Assuming can create great strain in a relationship, a trying situations and very challenging to successfully to get ourselves out of.

 

In knowing we go into a business situation with confidence, knowledge and understanding which will enhance our decision making.

 

A person that assumes goes into a business situation with very little or no information.  They place themselves into a weak position in the relationship and at a total disadvantage in any negations that would take place. In the long run they create a lose – lose situation for them self.

 

A person that that enters into a business relationship armed with both knowledge and understanding increases their value in the relationship and will be seem as a professional.

 

They will increase their possibility of engaging in a successful and productive relationship.

 

Don’t assume – know, is the art of preparing for success.

Assuming is making a judgement without all of the facts.. not a good idea.
