I was stuck on a major project. I asked my friend Sam for help. The biggest part of his help was listening. But shooting a chunk of video and loaning me lights and expertise for another part didn’t hurt.
I tweeted, asking who wanted to learn something about teaching. Becky wanted to learn something to help her teach a workshop that night. We talked a bit. I’m not sure she heard anything new, but she did get confirmation that one piece was exactly right.
My friend Rob asked how I was doing this morning. His question made me think about how I usually answer that question.
We need to ask. We need to listen.
What do you need to get on the outside of your head? What do you need to ask someone?
