I Thought You’d Never Ask
I had an experience yesterday regarding asking the right question. I wanted a particular responsibly at work, but thought I would get shut down. I dabbed in it a few times, but it was never really mine. I did some work behind the scenes to get me ready. I just had to get the okay from the woman in charge of it. When she brought up the situation again, I told her I would take it on if she was okay with it. She said definitely and told me that it would be less work for her. It almost seemed like she wanted to ask me, but she thought I would turn it down. I was thinking that she would say I wasn’t qualified to do it. We were both were thinking the same thing! It wouldn’t have happened at all if I kept my mouth shut. I’ve learned that in order to get what you want, you must ask for it. I could’ve still been wondering if or when I could get this opportunity, but now it’s mine. I’m happy!
