A place where we can learn and make decisions.
In my opinion this is the most effective form of learning and decision-making. If you want to have a conversation with someone that’s not necessarily an expert, you can easily find someone who is, and you can have the conversation with the person who has the most knowledge and the most experience.
When you find someone you want to make a choice and to make the most of that choice you have to get the person to do it. There are lots of things people don’t know about their culture and their values and their beliefs. For example, if you want to know the person’s religion and your religion, you need to go to the person’s Facebook page, or the person’s website, or the person’s Twitter account.
When you get to the point of asking a question or asking the person to do something, you can’t just say, “Hey, I’d like to make a choice.” You need to come up with a plan. You need to have a conversation. You need to have a plan.
In a world where there is so much information to be collected it’s hard to think of anything that isn’t already on someone’s mind. The human mind works like a well-oiled machine. We don’t have the means to make our minds work any better, so we rely on our friends. If you need to get something done in your life, you need to ask someone that you trust for help. You need to ask a trusted friend for guidance.
How do you get someone to help you out when you know that they are completely clueless about what is going on? You make them an offer. You tell them what you want and ask them to help you. You give your best effort and then you ask for a favor. You ask, “Help, I am stuck. Please, can you help me out or can you just give me a few minutes? I need help.
The best way to ask someone for help is to ask a friend. Not your spouse, not your mom, not your boss, not your kids. Someone you are truly trusting. Someone you believe in. Someone you know you could trust. Someone who will do what you ask them to do. Someone you are willing to trust.
