A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.

~ Charles Dickens

Communicating with other people is sometimes so difficult, there are things we want to tell them, but we feel that they might take it the wrong way. So we decide not to speak up, not to tell our team, customer, friend something that might hurt them.

Inevitably those relations start to suffer as communication breaks down.

The challenges of developing software are mostly unrelated to technology. Projects, ideas, enterprises rise and fall due to the ability of their people to communicate with each other, to pursue a common goal and to ultimately succeed at what they do.

Make an effort and try to communicate with your team, be polite, but do not leave words unspoken.
