Love, love, love this idea put forth by Justin Wise at BeDeviant: The Big Ask Experiment. Basically, the notion is this: every day for one month, ask for something outrageous, out-of-the-ordinary, or just beyond your comfort zone, and see what happens.
I love this idea because I believe too many of us live life safely. We’re afraid to take risks. We’ve settled for what’s come easily. And, ultimately, we’re living sub-standard to the life God has in mind for us.
I also love the idea because it requires us to be honest and courageous. We all have unspoken desires that we’ve been too meek to pursue. The Big Ask Experiment may help us pursue those desires. And, as we do, we’ll be empowered and lifted up by the experience and the adrenaline it brings.
I haven’t made my list of requests just yet but likely they will be around work – asking for new business from prospective clients. One ask might come in negotiating a house purchase. I also hope to be open to asks that aren’t planned – things that arise in a conversation.
