This is probably going to sound as if straight out of a self help book, but it isn’t. For now, and I’m putting this down into words so that in case things don’t work out, at least I know exactly what I was thinking and why I did what I did. So, enough beating around bushes at 7AM. Here goes:
I’ve come up with the theory of ‘Demanding more’. This could be looked at as a both a strategy for pushing yourself to work harder, as well as a negotiating tactic. More than anything, you can look at it as a method for squeezing the maximum out of a situation. I’ve been told that I’m being unrealistic and impractical, but I think with little to lose and nothing to risk, I might as well demand more from myself and others because there’s always the possiblity that I might get what I want. If not, there’s always a greater possiblity that one may get more than what one was getting, before that demand was being made. At worst, I shall get what I a currently getting. While I’m not at liberty to disclose the actual circumstances, I’m sure you understand what I’m saying.
Do you think I should write a self help book? Perhaps I shall demand that of myself later. For now, I have other demands, like reports and presentations, to attend to. *grin*
