When you’re clear about what is expected right now, there is little room for misunderstanding later.
‘Right now’ can be at the very beginning of any relationship or project.
‘Right now’ can also be in the middle.
When things aren’t going the way you expected, it’s never too late to pause and reset expectations.
Is it a little bit more painful halfway through, than at the beginning? Yes.
But it’s far less painful than never talking about it at all.
