Challenge Yourself: Just Ask!

May 25, 2017

Career Advice

As Wayne Gretzky says, “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.” This could also be interpreted as “If you don’t ask, you’ll never know” or even with the addendum: “…and the answer will always be no.”

So here’s a challenge for you this month: just ask! Here is some inspiration to get you started. Ask…

  • what it will take to get that promotion.
  • someone you look up to if they will be your mentor.
  • if you can take on a project that you are highly interested in.
  • for a recommendation on LinkedIn.
  • yourself if it’s time for a new job.
  • for some time off.
  • when you’ll get your next raise.
  • if you can take a relevant class on the company’s dime.
  • for help on a project.
  • yourself if you’re happy.
  • why something is the way it is.
  • if you can go to a conference you’ve been dying to go to.
