  5. When dealing with people, let us remember

  7. The purpose of a pitch isn’t necessarily to move
    others immediately to adopt your idea. The
    purpose is to offer something so compelling that
    it begins a conversation, brings the other person
    in as a participant, and eventually arrives at
    an outcome that appeals to both of you.

  25. It isn’t necessary to work yourself
    into the ground to be passionate
    about your work. In fact, it’s hard

    is slowly draining all your energy.

  30. Criticism is futile because it puts a person on
    the defensive and usually makes him strive to
    justify himself. Criticism is dangerous, because
    it wounds a person’s precious pride, hurts his
    sense of importance, and arouses resentment.

  32. Instead of condemning people, let’s try to
    understand them. Let’s try to figure out why
    they do what they do. That’s a lot more
    profitable and intriguing than criticism; and
    it breeds sympathy, tolerance and kindness.

  33. Don’t criticize them; they are
    just what we would be under

  35. In the moment when I truly understand my
    [coworker], understand him well enough to
    [persuade] him, then in that very moment I also
    love him. I think it’s impossible to really
    understand somebody, what they want, what
    they believe, and not love them the way they
    love themselves. And then, in that very moment
    when I love them.... I [persuade] them.
