Don't jump to conclusions. I must remind myself of this over and over. Don't jump to conclusions. While I often seem to immediately know the correct answer to a question or problem, that is not jumping to a conclusion, I simply allow my brain and instincts to react; when they are in agreement it is a wondrous thing. Listening to the first half of someone's sentence and believing I know the entirety of what they want to convey IS jumping to a conclusion; it is a bad habit that is going to cause a real problem. If it hasn't already.
