Learn to ask.
If you think the world knows what you want, you are going to be really disappointed. The Russians have a proverb for this: "Those who do not ask, do not know how to live". Remember that everyone you know and all those you are going to meet in the future, thinks more about himself than anything else. Every single one of them.
We all have our own battles to fight. You have your, I have mine, my neighbour has his and so does his uncle. Your boss has his own battles and most times he is plotting about it. So the next time you want something in your job, do not assume he knows, you must ask.
The same goes if you are in a relationship. Do not assume your partner knows everything you desire. Such relationships are rare and takes a long time to build. To avoid heart ache, take time to ask.
