We’ve all held back from asking for advice.
We’ve been in situations where we didn’t know what to do, and we could have asked someone more knowledgeable than us for advice—but we didn’t.
Maybe it worked out in the end and just took a little longer than it otherwise would have; maybe it didn’t work out at all. But we may have been a little more informed and prepared for it had we solicited the advice of someone we trust.
