This is your Tuesday evening reminder to just ask.
Ask him what he’s thinking.
Ask about the promotion.
Ask her why she never calls anymore.
Ask your waitress if you can have a different salad because the chicken tastes weird. She won’t hate you (and if she does, get over it).
Ask about something that doesn’t feel right or okay.
Ask about money.
Ask her on a date.
Ask about something your intuition is telling you.
It’s okay to not get the response you desire. Try again later. Move on if the answer is no. Get uncomfortable so you can grow and then ask harder questions later. I’m not always good at this because I don’t want to look dumb, I am afraid of the answer, or it just feels so awkward.
Probe. Be curious. Ask. Dig. People and situations can be complex. If you never ask, you’ll never know.
