You can get a better grip on the problems you’re tackling right now if you have the courage to ask a few sensitive questions of a few very powerful people. You have to break out of your shell and not worry so much about how someone will react to your questions. If you need to get an answer, you need to ask the person who has it. There is no getting around it! People will respond positively to the bold and aggressive you, so try it out sooner rather than later.
