important-stampI’m in a crazy season where I just can’t seem to keep up with everything that’s going on. Ever been there?

In seasons like this, it would be easy to put communication on the back burner.

Bad idea!

Consider this example… I tell my friend Joe, I’m going to do something by a particular date. As that date approaches, I realize because of some unforeseen circumstances there’s no way I’m going to be able to do it by then.

Some people think, “I need to buckle down, get it done and then I’ll let him know.”

That seems reasonable, but put yourself in Joe’s shoes. When he doesn’t hear from me, he’s wondering, “Did Paul get it done and not tell me? Did he not get it done? If he didn’t get it done when will he have it done?”

All these unknowns cause stress for Joe. And depending on his mindset, Joe could start speculating, start thinking worse-case scenarios and even start attributing false motives to me.

So, one of my mantras is:

Communication is the most important part of everything you do

It’s the most important part of what you do as a…

  • leader
  • employee
  • pastor
  • teacher
  • volunteer
  • coach
  • parent
  • spouse
  • friend

Everything!

  • If there’s a problem, let people know and then fix it.
  • If you messed up, apologize and then resolve the issue.
  • If you have a concern, voice it before it becomes a major problem.
  • If you’re not sure you understand, ask for clarification.

Relationships are key to virtually every aspect of life. The biggest problem in relationships is misunderstandings.  Communication both prevents and alleviates misunderstandings.

What do you think?  Agree?  Disagree?  Why?
