Be Sure to Ask

Dan McCarthy's career advice post, "You Have to Ask for It," is right on target.

Organizations don't naturally wonder about what their employees want. Unrewarded genius is the norm. As some wag put it, fools rush in and get the best seats.

If you want something, you have to ask for it. Don't hint. Don't expect justice. And don't think the decision is obvious.

Michael -
Thanks for the mention, and for summerizing what I meant so well. I'll be quoting you next time I give this advice.
