Don’t be afraid to ask for directions

Today I got on the bus and a new driver was covering my local route. She explained how she had never done it before and asked if I’d be able to guide her once around.

Many people in this situation would have just tried to second guess their way around to avoid embarrassment but instead she used what was available to save herself from getting lost.

In life, we know where we’d like to go but are often too proud or too shy to ask for directions.

What we need to realise is that people naturally love helping other people. The Internet is a huge open directory full of those who have walked the path you’re starting, so go on – just ask.
