Fuzzy logic isn’t going to get you very far today. If you’re trying to get your way in any type of negotiation, don’t try to take a shortcut. It will only backfire on you. Like it or not, you have to back things up with research and proof. Sure, it might take a little bit of extra time to gather together the information you need to make your case, but in the end you’ll thank yourself for doing whatever it takes to ensure that you aren’t going to be embarrassed.
If you get the sense a certain someone isn’t telling you absolutely everything, you’re absolutely right. (You’re not telling everything either, are you?) Fish around with subtlety and lure them into saying more.
If someone is trying to push you around today, you need to stand up for yourself. Your partner is always willing to back you up, but it’s up to you to not be a doormat.
Go ahead, fantasize about riches all you want. But don’t be surprised if those very daydreams keep you from attaining them. If you want to get ahead in reality, then keep your mind from wandering.
