MISSION ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE FOR FOUNDING A SMALL NONPROFIT!!!

My spontaneous idea was to found a nonprofit for a Molecular Immunology Society and as soon as I began to research it I was devastated from the first moment. Fundamentally I discovered that you need too much money and too much of an investment in time, energy, and personnel for an unpopular cause, organization, or charity.

You need to advertise and these days that means setting up a website. If you are a newbie website then you won’t be considered a secure website by most search engines like Google so you become the low human on the search engine totem pole. Even if you are a secure website the search algorithms are tweaked every once in a while and if you have very few visitors to your website or think that you have optimized your search parameters then they can change overnight. Fundamentally you need advertising money and lots of it to be at the forefront of a web search.

There are very few self managing web sites where donations are automatically recorded and emails kept track of. Then there is the problem of producing relevant articles to satisfy existing donors and entice new ones to contribute money. It is hard producing unique articles which don’t eventually start boring your clientele especially if they have little detailed knowledge about molecular immunology. So you may successfully brand the nonprofit but won’t be able to maintain or attract much interest.

Social or professional networking is another tedious aspect which requires keeping in touch with current researchers and understanding what their research papers are about and how relevant their research may be. Often basic research does not wander too far afield of current research ideas and then there are those research subjects which probabilistically have a very low chance of yielding any revolutionary or new insights. So you have to hire a high level expert in the profession to do the research grant evaluations and just one expert may be overly biased in the field and not very competent. What you ideally really need is a handful of research experts to evaluate research grants and the articles which originate from the research effort.

My idea was to give scientific instruments to competent researchers in the field of molecular immunology but even here serious decisions have to be made on what form of immunology you will choose because immunology is broadly understanding how your body defends itself from various diseases such as cancer, allergies, pathogens, etc. and the list is almost endless.

To donate scientific instruments you have to keep current on what the most important ones are and this means keeping up on current literature and making contact with instrument manufacturers.

So how many humans would really be interested in donating money to fund scientific instruments for researchers in the molecular immunology field? Probably one in a million unless it is a rich patient who has come down with a fatal disease which seems to have no current cure.

Interest in the general public is miniscule and interest by big pharma is probably also minimal since most are interested in developing drugs which you become addicted to for diseases which are never really cured but where the symptoms are merely masked. Repeat customers is what big pharma mostly wants and cures are scary and devastate the bottom line or money earned.

Donating scientific instruments to basic researchers in molecular immunology is an idea with minimal public interest which translates into very few donors and fundamentally a bankrupt nonprofit. The nonprofit can’t stay afloat financially if run properly and is basically an unpaid labor of love if you want to set up a professional expert networking communications system.

I end with the IRS accounting system which is necessary for a nonprofit and this is also very time consuming and detailed which probably means having to hire a professional accountant if you can’t do it yourself.

Ideally a nonprofit should spend about 10% in administrative costs and about 90% should go to the charity. Realistically I now understand why popular charities spend about 90% on administrative costs and only about 5 or 10% go to the charity cause itself.

The conclusion is that nonprofits for rare causes are just not financially feasible unless you get a very rich donor or handful of rich donors.

INEFFICIENCY IS USUALLY IMMORAL IN NATURE!!!

Science has and is studying nature and has come up with a mathematical definition for efficiency. Science has shown how efficient lifeforms survive in greater numbers and succeed in reproducing for the benefit of future generations. Wilderness and wildlife is extremely efficient and remarkably does so in a non polluting sustainable way.

Now it is time to apply as much of this efficiency as possible to the human condition or behavior which is generally very inefficient, very polluting also, and not sustainable in the long duration. My primary focus will be the efficiency of human behavior but I will momentarily digress to show the role that efficiency plays in wild nature.

Without getting mathematical I will try to explain the fundamental principles of human efficiency and hope that this will eventually convince you that human efficiency is a very desirable and even a moral necessity. If you are WASTING time and energy and often money also in the pursuit of a just goal(s) then you are being inefficient.

For humans wasting time and energy in the process of achieving a goal(s) morally is being inefficient. Notice that the goal which you are trying to achieve is a very important consideration because some goals require little energy and some goals require much energy in a short duration.

Using predators as an example, cheetahs spend much time using up very little energy while stalking their prey but put on a tremendous burst of energy in a short duration when they commit to catching prey, the goal. When the goal is to stalk prey you can erroneously conclude that the cheetah is wasting time but the truth is that it is not wasting but conserving energy which it needs to catch prey in sudden bursts of energy expenditure. The goal is to catch the prey and if the cheetah is very inefficient it will fail at catching prey too many times, waste much energy, and ultimately risk starvation and death.

Why do I say that inefficiency is USUALLY immoral in nature. Well, if the predator is super efficient then the possibility that he will catch and eat all the prey may lead to starvation and death also since there is no more prey to hunt. That is why most predators are not super efficient or catch and kill ALL the prey that they hunt for.

For humans becoming an adult and making good money in some profession is a laudable goal. Many have spent little time and energy acquiring a useful education which includes important subjects for the technological world such as math, science, and economics. Many have taken the easy way out by taking subjects which don’t require much time and energy or effort and find themselves with college degrees which are job poor and with so few sellable skills that they wind up working in starter jobs at minimum wage.

For humans useful goals are the most important and if you don’t consider yourself academic material because of insufficient ability then a vocation is a more practical and logical choice to try and achieve.

Before launching into a comprehensive discussion of the immorality of inefficiency it is important to address one major objection and that is that there are efficient moral humans and efficient immoral humans and criminals. You could argue that efficiency is amoral and applies equally to all kinds of humans. An efficient criminal will get away with his or her stealing and lying more often than an inefficient criminal who will more readily get caught and punished. An efficient moral human will succeed much better in having a good family, good friends,  earning a good reputation, and gaining better social status than a moral but inefficient human.

Efficiency is really the morality of NATURE and whether you are predator or criminal OR prey or law abiding moral human, if you are inefficient then you will be punished in some way in the long duration. So efficiency is a universal morality for all lifeforms on the surface of this earth. The efficient will be rewarded most of the time and the inefficient will be punished sooner or later most of the time.

For human behavior, making too many of the same mistakes over and over again, talking too much or being verbose, spending too much money and time on relatively trivial pursuits such as games and compulsive shopping, watching too much mindless TV, arguing instead of discussing, procrastinating, not being punctual, incompetence, spending too much time and energy on bad habits such as gambling, pornography, promiscuity, drugs, alcoholism, gluttony, lust, etc., and all these human behaviors have an inefficiency component which I consider immoral and which most current moral humans consider bad behavior most of the time.

The goal(s) that you are trying to achieve and the means used are very important when considering the immorality of inefficiency. If your goal is to make money then there is the moral and immoral way of doing it. If you lie and steal efficiently, both immoral acts most of the time, to get money, then you don’t seem bad from the efficiency standpoint but you are using immoral means since you are lying and stealing which is of primary importance and considered bad.

Yes, efficiency is not a good or bad behavior but depends on the means used to achieve a goal also. It is the age old question of whether the ends justify the means. In times of peace to maintain social order and peaceful interaction between humans it is not wise to permit lying and stealing which leads to social chaos in the long duration if accepted or permitted.

Gambling is bad for most humans because it is an inefficient use of money which they usually end up losing. However, risk taking is a form of gambling by entrepreneurs and is vital for progress to be made in society. If your goal is to make money via a new business venture then it is usually moral to do so and if you are efficient then you should make a profit if the investment is a sound one and you provide a service or product which customers need or desire.

Morality is a rather complex issue to discuss and what we have so far established is that it is a moral behavior if the means to get to a goal(s) is a moral process and the goal(s) itself is socially desirable. Finally, it is even a better or more moral outcome if it is done efficiently.

You can be a very moral or outstanding human but if you do so inefficiently then you are immoral to some degree although not chronically immoral. So for all those thinking that they are morally flawless or impeccable, if you are inefficient then you still are not a perfectly moral human, especially according to nature.

17 REASON’S PEOPLE FAIL!!!

Perhaps the most important reason people fail is because they don’t have the natural ability to succeed in an exceptional way. Your memory may not be that good which is important in managerial positions or you may not be energetic or self driven enough and may be lazy, a procrastinator, and always trying to take the easy way out. Yes, a great memory, being a fast learner, and being supper energetic are characteristics you often need to make an exceptional impact in life.

In sports it helps if you have been physically gifted with excellent coordination, endurance, great muscle memory, and strength. Yes, some humans are born with the right muscle structure and type to run the fastest and some of the best acrobats are born with natural flexibility much beyond the average. It is a sad fact of life that humans are born unequal with different natural strengths and weaknesses. It greatly helps if you are born with a high IQ or incredible physical abilities. Yes, without natural talent you still may be able to make it with smart hard work but you also run the risk of premature burnout mentally or physically. Yes, it is also true that without hard smart work a high IQ or great physical ability will be largely wasted and you may still not amount to very much in life.

5 THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN MAKING GOALS!!!

Specify the goal in detail and also all the specific details of the smaller goals on the way to the larger goal if it is a long duration goal.

Will you measure the achievement of the smaller goals as indicators that you are succeeding in reaching the long duration goal or what are the specific ways that you will know that you are in the process of succeeding or have succeeded in achieving your long duration goal?

Is your goal realistically attainable or do you have the time, money, and abilities to achieve those goals?

What is the approximate time duration for the achievement of the long duration goal and any relevant sub goals?

What kind of preparation do you need before embarking on the pursuit of a goal(s)?

WHAT DO YOU REALLY NEED OR WANT???

Try to answer these questions as best you can and write them down if you won’t remember some of the answers. You may be surprised how much you will learn about yourself or become conscious of your needs and wants.

Do I know what to do to get to where I want to be or go?

Do I know how to gradually become who I want to be?

Can I list in order of importance the things which I care about the most?

Can I change what is holding me back right now?

Do I know what to do to improve myself and/or my circumstances?

What would I have to sacrifice to get to where I really want to be or go?

Do I feel stuck with something or is there a way out of it that I or someone can see?

Can you list things which you definitely don’t want?

Would it help if I learned something new and useful on almost a daily basis instead of just once a week or month?

What are some examples of good days and how could I increase their number or frequency?

Can I list some short and long duration goals which apply to me?

Do I know that my habits are often short duration goals which are being impulsively achieved on a regular or repetitive basis and often with little planning?

What short duration goals can I add which will help my long duration goals?

Can I list my good and bad habits?

What daily habits, especially bad ones, can I reduce or replace with better habits or goals?

Getting to work on time, preparing a meal, driving a car to a destination, studying for a test, asking a question on a search engine, reading an article, reading a short book, going out on a date with a significant other, etc. can be thought of as short duration habits or short duration goals being achieved.

Preparing for a better job, going to school, taking a course on the internet, learning to play an instrument, raising offspring, saving money to travel to an exotic place, saving money to invest in a business, writing a book, etc. can be thought of as long duration goals in the process of being achieved which require the achievement of short duration goals along the way.

Ultimately the key to a successful and happy life is to personally set realistic goals which match your ability and will hopefully reward your determined efforts. Set many small short term goals and achieve them to gain confidence. Set some large duration goals and work towards them on a regular basis with the hope of achieving them within a reasonable period of time.

Yes, some sacrifice of time, energy, and money will be necessary but actively pursuing short and long duration goals is what makes life worth living and is seldom a boring experience.

Research, read, write something down, think, and do is the road to achievement in a nutshell.

Fundamentally it is all a question of knowing how to improve yourself and your circumstances. The only real difference is in how FAST the improvement becomes or how ambitiously you pursue the improvement. Use search engines to help you answer questions if you don’t know where to start or read a good book on the subject which you are questioning. Best wishes. Uldis

PROS AND CONS OF SOCIAL MEDIA!!!

Pros:

You can network with humans worldwide

You can intimately communicate with close friends and family

You can network with professionals on Linkedin

You can share hobbies and good internet websites

You can minimize TV watching

Cons:

The information can be overwhelming

It is hard to exclude false content

Not good for group discussions

It can become an addictive timewaster

You can become a victim of bullying, sexual abuse, and profanity

You can become a victim of insults, put downs, name calling, ridicule, and humiliation

Personal fitness and family time together may suffer

Privacy issues

You can easily fall prey to quantity not quality communications

You can become a victim of too many ads

 

Social media is a potentially powerful tool which if used judiciously can make and maintain good social contacts and reveal some useful information. Used poorly the addictive tool can become a time waster and take valuable time away from other daily useful pursuits. If you judiciously prioritize the humans that you interact with and schedule your time well then social media can be a great asset in your life.

Pros:

Networking with humans worldwide is a great advantage if you travel much or want to maintain professional contacts worldwide in your field of expertise. Cheap communications over the internet are very alluring and you don’t have to pay high rates for international communication.

You can easily and cheaply keep in touch with close friends and family members nationally by choosing either Facebook or Instagram. You can use one website exclusively for casual contacts and many “friends” which you only view once in a while. Use another website where you more frequently stay in touch with close friends and family. Separating your close contacts with more remote ones is a good idea so you don’t mix important contacts with rather unimportant ones.

Linkedin is an important website for networking with professional contacts and then you can switch to personal emails if you want the communications to be more intimate or private.

You can network with humans who have similar hobbies or pastimes and share your passion. Getting hints from others about good websites for your important interests can supplement your initial Google or search engine results.

Social media and the internet in general will probably minimize your need to watch TV. You won’t be wasting your time on rather trivial pursuits if you so desire.

Cons:

Social media can become overwhelming, especially if you are young, get addicted, and are not very selective in the humans that you interact with. Keeping track of a hundred or more friends or acquaintances can be mind boggling. Intensively communicating with a handful of friends can consume an incredible amount of time and be overwhelming. Too much social media can adversely affect your schoolwork, job performance, and offline human communications ability.

If you are heavily involved in politics a recent phenomenon is fake news and it is increasingly becoming harder and harder to tell whether a news report is reliable or possibly misinformation and false. If it is not a reputable source then there is always the possibility of unreliable or false information. A lie like a rumor can quickly spread through social media before you realize what the real truth is. The internet in general is increasingly being plagued with fraudulent activity in the form of scam websites, scams, and bad information in general.

Social media is also not very useful for group discussions so special software may have to be installed to get a group to communicate with each other simultaneously.

Social media can become addictive just like texting so become concerned and start cutting back if you are spending more than two hours daily communicating with others.

Especially young children can become victims of bullying, sexual abuse, and profanity. Further they may be insulted, put down, name called, ridiculed, and humiliated on social media by others. If you become a victim of abuse on social media then it can have some devastating psychological impacts on your mind and behavior. If you are not a fully developed personality incapable of turning off personal assaults then you may become depressed, miserable, or constantly involved in dysfunctional communications.

Too much social media can have negative impacts on your physical fitness and take away from valuable time spent with family. Becoming physically unfit and becoming unable to successfully communicate with family members is something which should be avoided at all costs.

Privacy issues are important because anything on social media is essentially a public communication. Potential employers may view your social media presence and make decisions about hiring based on what kind of friends you have and how much unfavorable information you may have revealed to the world about yourself. A social media presence which shows that you use profanity frequently, are promiscuous, and have friends with bad behavior or criminal records will doom you for any future employment. A delinquent childhood may doom a successful career as an adult in the working world.

The major drawback to social media is that you often can’t discriminate between quality vs. quantity interactions. You may quantitatively communicate much but the quality of your communications may be very bad or mostly trivial useless communications. Essentially you may be wasting your time, energy, and even money on social media and not bettering your life in any significant way.

Most social media is interested in making some money off of you. This often means that you will be deluged with ads for information, goods, and services which may make you buy things which you really don’t need and not only waste your time but also your money too.

Conclusion:

Social media is a tool which when used efficiently can help you to maintain contact with important humans in your life and become the source for interesting information and communication. Used inefficiently, social media can become a waster of your time, energy, and eventually money. So learn to use social media wisely and avoid all the pitfalls or cons which are a great temptation and can lead to addictive misery and failure in life.

Social media is a useful technological tool. Use it wisely by prioritizing your contacts, time and energy spent and you will greatly benefit. Use it unwisely and it can become quicksand which will slowly drown you in a sea of overwhelming addictive mostly trivial information.

PRIORITIZE AND CATEGORIZE THE HUMANS IN YOUR LIFE!!!

Prioritize and list the humans that you need and want to spend the most time with.

Categorize your human contacts as close friends, important and unimportant job related friends, casual friends, and acquaintances.

Interact with important friends more frequently or spend more time, energy, effort, and money on them.

Network or try to bond with humans who potentially could further your present or future career or job.

Take a chance or spend some time on new friends that interest you or are useful to you.

Try to associate more with humans or friends who motivate you to improve.

Maintain contact with humans who are progressing in life.

For close friends choose the ones with integrity who are moral and honest, dependable, competent, and somewhat ambitious and motivating. You must also have these traits if you want to attract quality friends.

To have a friend you must be a friend, help out where appropriate, and be interesting to talk to. You will probably connect more readily with humans who are close to your age, have the same educational level, and have some mutual or common interests in life.

Avoid or exclude bad or useless time wasting friends from your life.

Many humans will enter and leave your life throughout a lifetime. Don’t be afraid to leave or minimize contact with old friends and don’t be afraid to try to make new and perhaps better friends or contacts.

Continue to selfeducate yourself, broaden your interests, and improve yourself because ultimately humans want someone interesting to interact with too.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF 13 TIME MANAGEMENT AIDS AND FURTHER DETAILED EXPLANATIONS!!!

Don’t multitask

Set deadlines for important tasks before they are actually due

Minimize distractions

Ensure mental alertness with healthy food and drink, a good night’s sleep, morning exercise, and rest periods during work

Schedule important tasks during your most productive hours

Remind yourself by looking at a written schedule

Batch your tasks in order of priority

Refuse additional commitments unless it is an emergency

Keep your workspace organized

Manage your stress with breaks during work and after work

Try to divide big tasks into smaller tasks or serial steps

Daily set aside some free time for emergencies and needed research

If permitted, work overtime to meet your daily schedule

Make a time schedule or logbook of your daily activities for two weeks with minute details such as going to the rest room and texting or talking on the cell phone.

Grouping or characterizing the activities is the hard part. For a job schedule you may have categories such as supervisory duties, meetings, appointments, communications via cell phone or computer, routine tasks, infrequent or unexpected tasks, break time, customer time, cleanup time, planning time, waiting time, and even doing nothing time or killing time.

Becoming a more efficient worker is hard because you have to analyze each

category and ask yourself. Should I spend less or more time on the category? How important is the category? Can the category be changed, improved, eliminated, or given to someone else? Can I take on more tasks or categories?

A parenting, managerial, technical, sales, and routine job are very different jobs and managing your time in each job category varies widely.

If you are stuck in a routine boring repetitive job then there is very frequently nothing much that you can do to improve it.

If you have a technical job then your primary means of improvement may be developing more technical skill either through learning or on the job training.

If your job is mostly managerial then you should concentrate on trying to improve on your emotional intelligence or communications skills.

If you are a parent trying to become a better one then sharing your experiences with other parents with children and getting feedback or reading parenting books may be a logical way to improve.

If you are in sales then there is a big difference in selling software or selling cars. For car sales things such as speedy delivery, color, size, extras, and brand popularity are frequently more important than the actual functionality or details of the product. Salesmen have to come across as someone whom the customer can trust and establishing quick rapport or trust is a skill few humans have in abundance. Good sales humans have excellent human skills and can deal with all kinds of personality types rich or poor.

Planning ahead is very important in time management and looking over a schedule the night before or reviewing a schedule of things to do before the job starts is a very useful tool.

If you are forgetful then by all means write down your tasks or assignments and the deadline or when they are due and your approximation of about how long it will take.

Make a To Do List with things which have to be completed and update it daily and make it electronically available to your boss and coworkers so they know your workload and will hopefully not overload it.

Stay organized by clearing your work desk and computer of clutter or useless info. Organize everything so it is readily accessible when you need it.

Try to schedule important meetings or events early in the morning which is usually the time when you are working most efficiently or when you are at your best.

Try to fence humans out during your most productive hours. Do not disturb signs are the old way of doing this but you can block out times on your electronic schedule or be short and dismissive if you are interrupted.

Based on your time on the job you can come up with an approximation of the time it takes for you to handle unexpected delays or small rush tasks or communications. Set aside that extra hour or two for delays and you may not have to work overtime each time unexpected obligations arise during the day.

Cut back on your verbosity with family, coworkers, and even boss and stay on topic or subject and try not to diverge. Try to be as brief as possible and to the point in businesslike fashion.

Write down important information about a phone conversation if you are the forgetful kind and usually briefly talking over the phone is quicker than a memo to that human.

Meetings can be a big time waster if humans are not given the agenda ahead of time or if there is no agenda, if the meeting is not held in the morning but at the end of the day when most do not function efficiently, and if there is not a time limit placed on each agenda topic to encourage speedy resolution.

Protect your time from being hogged by others and simply standing up during an encounter can discourage idle conversation about irrelevant topics. Not having your desk chair face the door, having only one guest chair which needs pulling out, keeping your door shut or partially open can reduce interference times, and simply saying no I’m busy are all ways to discourage chit chat.

Learn to delegate authority if you are the manager.

You can greatly reduce procrastination or even eliminate it if you have a To Do List and actually follow it.

Don’t turn down jobs which seem to be outside your realm of expertise. It may be a test to see if you can do more and you may even get a promotion and pay raise out of it if you succeed and do it well.

If you feel insecure about an assignment because of lack of knowledge or experience then try to get that knowledge from coworkers or other sources before you attempt it.

Use free time during travel time to gain new knowledge, communicate with humans, prepare for the future, or just use the time to rewind or relax.

Take 5 or 10 minute breaks during the day to wind down or do some relaxing to avoid burnout.

At home save time by combining trips out of the house to more than one destination, organize your home, train your family to get accustomed to a normal routine which is relatively predictable, control your offspring access to the internet and TV, and try to live close to work.

Reward yourself with a tasty organic snack, herbal tea, organic fruit and/or vegetable juice, or a break after completing a task successfullyIf it is not convenient then your favorite treat is acceptable.

8 PRINCIPLES OF NEGOTIATION OR COMPROMISE!!!

negotiation1

Some things are nonnegotiable:

First of all it is important to realize that some things are just not negotiable and if you must or want to impose your will then force or withdrawal of a privilege is the only possible solution although often a temporary one.

Try to compromise or negotiate with a terrorist or a religious fanatic who thinks your requests are those of the devil incarnate and you will fail miserably. Fanatical dogmatic beliefs are frankly nonnegotiable and you are delusional if you think that communication will lead to any changes in those beliefs unless you are in a superior military and monetary situation and can threaten or scare someone into submission with the fear of death or financial bankruptcy.

You rarely know ahead of time but sometimes there are nonnegotiable points or demands which the human will not change under any circumstances. You may prepare to give in to the nonnegotiable demand but get a concession in return or a promise to do something which you need or want and the human can provide you with. This too is a win win situation because you are still both getting something which you need or want.

I don’t intend to give pointers on international negotiations but the principles involved in individual negotiations or compromise also apply to some extent in international ones too.

Negotiations or compromises are statistical probabilities:

Another basic truth is that negotiations are a scientific statistical probability and not an absolute certainty. You can increase the probability of a successful negotiation but you can’t always guarantee it. You may use every trick, tip, or negotiation principle and still fail at reaching a compromise.

It greatly helps to have integrity, respect, and expertise:

One of the most important negotiation principles is being liked and/or respected by the humans with whom you are trying to negotiate. Military, economic, and moral strength are respected by national leaders but integrity and expertise are respected and sometimes even admired by common humans.

Integrity is something which should not be compromised and if you are asked to sacrifice your morality for some short duration goal then your reputation will be affected adversely. Lie, steal, commit adultery, or murder someone and you have lost your integrity as well as your good social reputation.

Exclude intense and not so intense emotions as much as possible:

Emotional outbursts or communicating with much emotion can doom a negotiation because any strong indication of anger or arrogance will cause impulsive defensive actions or basically saying no to everything. Stay as cool, calm, and collected as possible in total discussion mode. Also don’t come in with a strong emotional attitude of arrogance or superiority with cockiness, overconfidence, bluster, offensive personal attacks such as insults, put downs, name calling, humiliation, and ridicule. No deal will be the result.

Know your adversary as much as possible:

This means finding out all that you can about your adversary before the negotiation. What they believe, what they think, what they do and who their associates or friends are will give you an idea whether they are negotiating from weakness or from strength. If you don’t know all the vital details ahead of time then the negotiation itself is a time to ask smart questions which will reveal important beliefs, opinions, and relationships.

Use time to your advantage:

Sometimes you can yield to or refuse a demand for a day, week, month, or years after which you either agree to renegotiate or switch to getting your demand for another duration. Time has an interesting way of changing minds because sometimes during duration ongoing circumstances almost force one to compromise.

Decrease and/or increase the frequency and/or length of a behavior or activity:

Sometimes a family compromise is merely decreasing the frequency and/or length of a behavior or doing it less often and not so long. Both spouses may feel that one is spending too much time on a behavior or activity which is causing family problems or personal dissatisfaction. The compromise is to promise to exchange behavior reductions and to shop less or spend less time on sports.

Spending more time on a behavior or activity may also be a compromise. One spouse may promise to spend more time interacting with offspring and the other may promise to spend more time researching recipes for tasty new home meals.

The third form of compromise is one spouse promising to increase an activity or behavior and the other promising to decrease an activity or behavior.

Stop or promise to never do that behavior or activity again is another possibility in a compromise.

A good behavior or activity can be increased or decreased in frequency and duration during a compromise but a bad behavior or activity should only be decreased in frequency and duration in a compromise. Immoral behavior or activity should be stopped.

Using the herd instinct or desire to belong to a group:

Sometimes compromise is more successful if you can point to many humans who are doing what you need or want to be done by a human. Peer or group pressure is sometimes a disadvantage in parental negotiations but if peers or groups are doing something right or it is something that you approve of then you can try to use peer or group pressure in a negotiation.

Stay focused on your goal(s):

Some aggressive negotiators, especially high pressure saleshumans, will try to intimidate, ignore, or cleverly change the subject to get you to say yes so try not to lose your focus on the goal(s) which you actually need or want and not those which you don’t want or need.

During a negotiation I had to repeat myself four times or ask one car salesman what was my yearly interest on a car loan based on a $3000 down payment. He ignored me or changed the subject four times before he finally came up with a printout in writing.
