Be an autonomous opt-out colleague

This is a communication technique I use all the time with my boss or team mates: Tell what I intent to do at time x, unless there’s a stop/change signal from someone.

Example message

Today I spoke to candidate x. (S)he failed our hiring standards when it came to answering JS questions, but on the other hand (s)he had a nice repository on GitHub. Unless I hear other opinions until tomorrow evening, I will reject the candidate.
