Are we on the same page?

On the same page
Do you know someone who understands you? Does this person often agree with you or have the same ideas when you are working together? If this is the case, it sounds like you are both on the same page. In this episode we look at that expression as well as on the same wavelength and in tune. It’s nice to find someone you can get along so well with.

Harp: Yeah, so with this expression, on the same page, imagine a book with lots of pages and you just happen to be on the same page with someone. In this case, you’re in the same place and have the same information.
Maura: Right. So it’s like you come from the same place, you understand each other, you’re at the same place.
Harp: Exactly.
Maura: And we should mention that this expression is especially used in business.
Harp: Yes. You hear it all the time in business: meetings, among partners in business. It’s used all the time.
Maura: Right. Because when you’re working with someone, it’s really important to know that you understand each other and that you have the same ideas about a project or something you’re working on.
