🧰 167#: Build-in public philosophy, 100+ No Code Resources, Warner Music Group trying to buy culture rather than create it

Create a shared understanding when working on something amazing

Create a shared understanding

A shared understanding is when you know what the other person is thinking - and why.

Whether you work with freelancers on Upwork or Designers through Twitter recommendations, at some point you’ll need to make sure that you are on the same page.

I’ve seen 5-page requirements documents and unless there is a shared understanding there will always be a lack of communication. So stop trying to write the perfect document, create a shared understanding and ask clarifying questions to reduce the uncertainty.
