Avoid negative things that you cannot grow accustomed to, such as commuting, noise, or chronic stress. Exepct only short-term happiness from material things, such as cars, houses, lottery winnings, bonuses, and prizes.
Assess products and services solely on the basis of their price and benefits.
A friend who deals in oil pumps told me how he once closed an eight-figure deal for a pipeline in Russia. "Bribery?" I enquired..."We were chatting, and suddenly we got on to the topic of sailing. It turned out that both of us-the buyer and me-were die-hard 470 dinghy fans. From that moment on, he liked me; I was a friend. So the deal was sealed. Amiability works better than bribery.
Think carefully about what you want before you inspect existing offers. Write down these criteria and stick to them rigidly...Instead, learn to love a "good" choice...Only the best will do? In this age of unlimited variety, rather the opposite is true: "Good enough" is the new optium.
In other words, you assess the process and not the result...Never judge a decision purely by its result especially when randomness and "external factors" play a role. A bad result does not automatically indicate a bad decision and vice versa. So rather than tearing your hair out about a wrong decision, or applauding yourself for one that may have only coincidentally led to success, remember why you chose what you did. Were your reasons rational and understandable? Then you would do well to stick with that method, even if you didn't strike it lucky last time.
