Chances are you’ve started working on a project and needed some direction along the way. We’ve all been there. Catch your confusion early and ask for clarification.
Avoid sounding incompetent and get to the bottom of the task at hand by asking your supervisor, “What is the greater goal of this project?” In most situations, you can strategize more effectively when you have a clear understanding of the project’s purpose.
Understanding the big picture is crucial, and your boss will likely be impressed that you’re focusing on long-term goals, thinking big picture and holding yourself and your organization accountable.
