Why are you asking me ... ?

What are you asking me is one thing. But why are you asking me? Like with storytelling and script writing, what a character says is less intriguing as to why they actually said it.

When you go and ask your mentor, for example, if it is ok to do something, then make quite sure your motivation is clear. If you are asking someone for their permission (like I wrote in the last VLOG) then that is one thing, but if you are asking someone for their blessing, well, then that is a whole other story.

Don't ask someone you look up to if something is right. We know what is right (and we know what is wrong), and if you don't, then, you have a problem.

So, the next time you ask a mentor if something is right, understand that you are not asking for permission, but rather, for their blessing. Don't do that!
