Failure to Launch due to Failure to Communicate

In most real estate transactions . . .

and most business transactions . . .

and most relationships (Biz AND Personal) . . .

Failure to LAUNCH (Succeed – Meet the goal or objective) happens because of:



It’s just plain SILLY.

There’s enough raplexity (Rapid Complexity) in our world already . . .

Failure to communicate is akin to throwing jet fuel on a raging fire with the hope that it’ll die down . . .

or being an ostrich (Sticking your head in the sand with the belief: “If you cannot see THEM, THEY cannot see YOU!”

I’m not sure that anyone does any of this “on purpose!”

It’s almost always accidental – an oversight – a dropped ball – as busyness fragments attention to the business of the moment.

When it happens, don’t blame other people or things or circumstances!

Acknowledge your role in the mishap and shift into the gear of full attention on the objective and the Spirit of humbly doing whatever it takes to right the ship.

Excuses cheapen the experience . . . Discount integrity.

Some examples of failing to communicate that can stall (or end) the mission:

  • Relying too heavily on your LEVERAGE – Things like making assumptions that other folks are as savvy as you with your technology and know how to use Electronic Signature programs
  • Relying too heavily on other PEOPLE – Don’t EVER assume that someone else passed along the information to others just because you gave it to them. Most people are busy enough dealing with their own in-box to become your messenger
  • An Honest Mistake . . . You simply forget to communication . . . or drop the ball
  • A Passive aggressive feint – Shutting down communication serves NO ONE . . . and will likely bring the issue to boiling point faster
Failing to communicate happens!
Don’t obsess about it!
Just mend the bridge and move forward!
When has Failure to communicate affected your business and/or relationships?
Just sayin’
