You need to get your new plan or project launched as soon as you can, so if you need help, ask for it now. Time is of the essence. Swallow your pride and talk to that person you know could get you right across the finish line. Find out if they have the time to come to your rescue. Use your charm to get them on your side if you have to. Flattery might be your best bet, especially since this person considers you an excellent judge of character.
