I know, I know. If you don’t happen to read Dutch, that’s an odd title. It means, “Put your finger up” but we’ll understand it better in English as “Raise your hand.”
I’m posting this bit of audio (which is a draft of my talk I’m giving this week called “The Power of Asking–and the Fear Behind Why We Don’t Do It“) to one of those times when we silently asked a question (which, ahem, means we weren’t asking it at all) and it was answered.
In the case I’m thinking of, John Muldoon answers my question, “When am I going to start writing and become a writer?” by setting up a daily writing habit for an experimental 30 days. A challenge I accepted (and continue to this day–I’m on day 2,352).
Every Single Day began on November 1, 2012 as a 30-day experiment to get me back into the writing habit.
Because I asked (albeit rather silently), he answered.
What are you holding back from asking?
