Stepping Around the Issue

I have reached the point where I want people to ask me what they want from me?  I can try to guess, but all too often I am wrong.  We waste a lot of time trying to figure out what others want us to do, if they would ask, they would get a correct yes or no answer.  Making me guess, leaves us both at a disadvantage wastes the precious time we have on earth.  

It sometimes takes guts to ask, guts well spent if you get the answer you want, and well spent if you know you are not going to get it, and need to make other plans.  

Are you often honest and direct in asking for what you want? 


  1. I am; I learned a long time ago to ask for what I want. If I get it, well then good; if I don't, well then that's how that goes.
    But you never know if you don't ask!

  2. Being raised in southern Virginia it was ingrained in me to always be polite. Being polite in my family meant never ever really saying what it is you wanted. In other words I was taught to be passive aggressive. Therefore asking for what I want is not an easy task but I try to get better at it. Thank you for this post.

  3. Yes I am too. Especially when it comes to work. I can get all Anna wintour.
