Making assumptions is something we do all the time. We just need to make sure that we are making the best possible assumptions we can. We don’t need to be building a story based on vague evidence. We need to fill in a gap or two with a most educated guess possible. What happens when we hold our assumptions as 100% correct? Take a quick look…

Assumptions are an evolutionary necessity; we simply cannot function without them. However, we need a strategy to help make better decisions with our assumptions. Things we can do:

  • Ask questions
  • Listen without judging
  • Never hold your assumptions as truths
  • Don’t be blindsided by your assumptions
  • Remember the past
  • Update your understanding

Say to yourself, “I will not hold my assumptions as 100% correct. I will continue to use assumptions as learning tools only.”
