Beach Walk 560 – Negotiating with Friends

I think it is easy to confuse the meaning of “putting business first” or “putting friends first.”

It’s more subtle than that if you want the business and the friendship to grow as a result of the working collaboration.

Hawaiian Word:
Hoʻaloha: friend

Beach Walk 78 – Negotiate or Compromise?

I love bringing things to consciousness and vlogging about various topics is definitely supportive of the process.

One of my favorite things — teasing apart the subtle differences — in this case between negotiation and compromise. To me, it’s much easier to negotiate between energetic peers. We may not be literally equal in all ways, but if we have respect for both self and other, then it is much easier to arrive at an agreement without either person having to cough up or experience loss.

Negotiation comes from strength; compromise is often associated with weakness. The paraglider is negotiating the wind, not attempting to compromise with it. He knows how to work his sail with the power of the wind to get what he wants.

Hawaiian words
Kūkākūkā: negotiate
