Beware of Projecting Your Autobiography

“Our tendency is to project out of our own autobiographies: what we think other people want or need.  We project our intentions on the behavior of others.  If they don’t interpret our effort as a deposit, our tendency is to take it as a rejection of our well-intentioned effort and to give up.” Stephen Covey, p192 The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People
