Leadership with heart, mind, and soul

#021: Just Ask

Added on by Sam Davidson.

Leaders ask.

They ask questions. They ask permission. They ask for access. They ask for the sale. They ask for the time. They ask for a meeting. They ask forgiveness. They ask for trust. They ask for the job. They ask for a chance.

(I'm learning this a lot myself. I hope to get better at this.)

The best way to get good at asking is by practice. Sure, people will say no sometimes. But you'll forget the sting of that as soon as someone says yes.

And no one will say yes unless you ask. 

Before you go to sleep tonight, ask yourself: what did I ask for today?

The fastest way to get a "Yes!" is to ask for it.
