TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Happy Holy Daze, Taurus! I’ve been
meditating on the perfect holiday gift for you. What item might inspire
you to take maximum advantage of the cosmic currents in 2007? I’ve
decided on *Winning With Integrity: Getting What You’re Worth Without
Selling Your Soul,* a book by sports agent Leigh Steinberg. It’ll help you
be both smart and heartful as you navigate your way through the
negotiations you’ll be called on to do in the coming months. Here’s a
taste of Steinberg’s advice. (1) Align yourself with people who share your
values. (2) Learn all you can about the other party. (3) Create a climate
of cooperation, not conflict. (4) Learn to listen. (5) Convince the other
party you have an option, even if you don’t.
jobs. don’t really want one. i’d like to ride on a moped in the french countryside, eat breads, cheeses and drink good wine.
and that’s basically it. i’m an aspiring lazy fat-ass. you don’t even have to have a degree for that. however, maybe i should see what Leigh Steinberg knows that i don’t about being a
slave workingman in our classist society and negotiating without selling out. everyone sells out. everyone’s a whore. (aren’t i darling?) anybody have a copy i can borrow?
