One of the biggest downfalls for people who are beginning to lift weights is that they are too embarrassed to ask for help. Their egos are too big to ask someone to correct their form or to spot them. They feel that asking for help would put them in a negative light.
In reality, people at the gym are open to teaching beginners how to lift properly. Everybody in the gym was a beginner at one point, and most feel the need to pass on the knowledge they learned from others.
There are really no downsides to asking for help; you can learn a lot just by asking one question.
Similarly, with our innovation projects, we are all open to ideas that would improve the quality and content of the projects. We’ve been given many suggestions from classmates and Mr. Theriault to help strengthen the weak points of our projects. With those ideas and suggestions, we can make our projects a whole lot greater.
