In the military we are taught that communication is key to success. If you say to your battle buddy, "The plan is to do this, this and this" and your battle buddy does not reply, it is safe to assume that he/she did not hear you. In such a case, you will repeat yourself again, and possibly even a third and forth time, until it is clear that your battle buddy has received and understands your message. It's the same with everyday life. If we (couples, business people, friends, etc.) practiced good communication skills, the world would be a much better place. Just my two-cents worth.
