IF YOU hope to take on new project, prepare before you see your boss:
1. Anticipate concerns. If you're doing well, your manager may be reluctant to change things. Or he may feel you're not the right person for the job. Try to predict these concerns beforehand so you can address them directly.
2. Make a plan. How will your current responsibilities be handled if you take on the new assignment?
3. Be patient. Give your boss time to think about it.
