I’m working on a segment for the book about asking for help. I’ve noticed that I just don’t ask for help nearly enough.
Here are some of the reasons why:
- I don’t want to admit to myself that I don’t know the thing.
- I don’t realize that I need help, even though I’m not making any progress.
- I only have a certain number of “silver bullets” and don’t want to use them up.
What are some of the things you think that get you not to ask for help?
