Disclosing Why?

Humans usually like to know why you want something done when you ask them a favour. It helps motivate them if they know that the purpose is one they approve of and consider important. So it usually helps to volunteer that information any time you make a request. The other advantage of disclosure is, if they know why you want something, they can often come up with a better solution than the one you requested.
