If they knew what you knew, felt how you felt, had the right perspective, it would be obvious to them too.
But they don’t.
This means that – assuming that it’s necessary and helpful to point out the obvious in this case – the way you do it matters a lot:
- What are you going to do to help you understand what’s obvious to them, and why this isn’t?
- With that in mind, what will you say now, in the moment, and how will you frame it to make it more obvious to them?
- What will you do in the long term to see other people’s “obvious” better – and to help others to see yours?
