You need to ask for what you want.
You cannot expect those around you to be mind readers. You need to find ways to communicate what you want. Be direct, up front and specific when making requests from others. They then have three options – Yes, No, or a Counter Offer to your request. Everything is negotiable, and very little is set in concrete, until the last conversation is had, and agreement is reached. Even then, there is opportunity for review, a little way down the track.
