356- On asking for help

Being able to ask for help is something I’ve never struggled to do.

The collaborative nature of my art has taught me that the best projects happen only with the help and support of other individuals.

But how we ask for help matters.

“I’d love your help to fix this situation” is very different than saying, “Help me fix this situation by doing this.”

When we’re too prescriptive about how we think a situation should be solved, we can stifle better solutions.

Try to be open-ended with your requests for help. You might just be surprised with the solutions that emerge.
