I’ve often operated under the assumption that, while sometimes flawed, crazy, and uninformed, I’m usually a pretty good judge of both character and situation, and can therefore detect when I’m right and when I’m wrong. That doesn’t always mean that I’ll be backing down once I’ve dug my paws into the ground, or that I’ll pat you on the back and say, “Nice one, you totally got me,” when you’ve made a good point. But I’d like to think that I don’t have my head in the clouds or in my you-know-what. Or in someone else’s you-know-what.
Well guess what? I’d be willing to bet that most people feel the same way I do. It’s a rare person who thinks, “Wow, my judgment is flawed and my BS meter has been broken since the early ‘90s.”
So, with that said, here are some tips to always be ready to get what you want, when it’s the right time to get it.
