Asking questions is a smart practice. It helps you gain the insights and information that you need to act according to the real facts, rather than from assumptions. Sometimes, it may take some humility to ask. But, don’t let pride get in the way of doing what needs to be done so that you make more informed decisions and take better formed actions. The first step to getting useful answers is to being brave to ask a question.
Sometimes, you may have eventually found the answer without having asked the question. Generally, that would take more time and possibly frustration and even mistakes. Asking questions directly moves the process along much quicker.
