Beach Walk 425 – How and Why to Just Ask

All too often we over-complicate things or just plain give up, when we could instead, “just ask.”

Today’s episode talks about two things to get organized in your mind if you want to ask for something this week. It’s pretty straightforward really, and the odds are definitely better than not bothering to ask at all!

I’m going to be interviewed by the Blog Squad this Thursday, May 17th at 3 pm PDT. (Check your time zone here.) This is a live show that encourages call-ins! I’ll be giving away a gift box of Hawaiian goodies to the first person who calls in with the correct answer to my question. Hints are being delivered in Beach Walks episodes this Mon, Tue, and Wed.

Hawaiian words
noi: to ask a favor
nīnau: to ask a question

  1. Phillip in LA says

    I read a great book on just asking a long time ago call “The Alladin Factor.” It gave examples of people that just asked and how well it works. I haven’t mastered this concept of just asking even though I know of having great results. Fear of rejection is the biggest known fear that I still give in to even knowing that it usually doesn’t have teeth.

  2. I came across this recently. I asked the company that I work for if we could use the office to film a short story. Knowing of all the recent paranoia of possible legalities and insurance issue excuses in the book, I was sure the final descision would be a resounding “no” as well as a “your crazy for asking” so I was shocked get the go ahead. Yep – as long as your asking isnt coming from a purely selfish, greedy place – its always worth asking.
