Keep in mind that every person with whom you come in contact today has a
perspective that is different than yours. Though you have much in common
with others, there are many differences as well. Even those who agree with
you have a different perspective than your own.
No one else knows exactly what you know. No other person shares your unique
set of experiences, just as you do not share the exact same experiences as
anyone else.

Your success in working with other people will depend largely on the degree
to which you are able to understand and consider their unique perspectives,
and on your ability to make your own perspective understood.

Your knowledge, your experiences, your opinions, your assumptions are not
necessarily shared by others. Make the effort to sincerely understand, and
to be understood. It will add value and effectiveness to every undertaking.
