What people need.
Or do you assume?
As experts in our field we get really good at looking at or talking to people and thinking we know (or having a good idea) what they need and have some really good solutions and services around what they could do to meet that need.
But we can't assume what they need without asking.
A person who is feeding their kids unhealthy food may not need to be educated that what they are doing is unhealthy, perhaps they need someone to drive them to babysit those kids while they go to the vegetable market.
The person walking down the street looking stressed and out of breath may not need to be told they should exercise, perhaps they need a boss who let's them have an extra 30 minutes in their lunch break and a techie to show them how to access internet banking instead of racing to the bank at lunchtime instead of the gym.
I'm not saying that people who are making unwise lifestyle choices should be able to get support and help (if they want it) without people assuming what they need without asking.
Oh, actually that's exactly what I am saying.
Don't Assume. Ask.
