Every Day, I Become Better in Every Way. [Nov. 11th, 2004|09:39 pm]
Sauce1977

I just finished training for a new career.

Half of the folks were over 40.

They knew that they were being passed up for other jobs because of their age.

Another man shared with me that a company chose not to hire him because he smoked nicotine cigarettes.

If you are a woman, you are paid less because you will cost more in benefits and down time at some point. This may not be the case, but it is the standard in any industry.

The poor are the first to be sent to war. The Armed Forces are volunteer corps in the United States, but the recruiters do not show up in the wealthier part of town . . . they go right into the 'ghetto,' and they approach college students.

Of the above paragraphs, do any of them really matter?



Of the above, the best would be the first line, which is a positive accomplishment of mine. This wouldn't affect anyone but me, as I learned some new ideas to help me help you.

I'll share one piece of information from the class.




Negotiations 101





1. The other must feel he or she receives a good deal.*

2. You aim high. The other aims low. You negotiate to the middle. The middle is where you want it to be.

3. When the other offers higher than you expected, set that as the new low. Do not lower your aim.**


* Some folks will not think any deal is a good deal. It is best in this case to offer them a chance to negotiate elsewhere.

** If you lower your aim, you run a high risk of making the other feel he or she has not received a good deal.






I'm watching the Saving Private Ryan on the network TV. Have a good weekend.

Trying to wheel and deal a job . . . trying to wheel and deal a new place to live.

I'm doing this at once, and I'm doing all of it for the first time.

It might not all work out, but I think most of it will.

Wow, training for a new career. Scary, and exciting. Endless bucket of stress, huh?

Well, I do believe the universe is on your side.

I am trying to figure out what kind of a career requires lessons in negotiations.

You're becoming a used-car salesman, aren't you!

Or, a United States diplomat. Good luck with that. It is very much the same thing.

Maybe, d'oh!

It is really depressing to know that I am paid less because I am a woman. But what of older men who have heart problems because their cholesterol is too high or develop chronic illnesses that are more common in men? Women face these problems too, but at lower levels. And don't even get me started on the glass ceiling.

None of that information matters.

Exceptions exist to the ideas.

Glass ceilings were made to be very dramatically shattered. Broken glass is pretty!
