Compromise:  The art of dividing a cake in such a way that everybody
believes he got the biggest piece.

    • I like this...I think?  hehe!

      Really?  

      I’ve always viewed “compromise” as making the choice to take the smaller piece...and being ok with someone else or others having the bigger piece(s).

      This definition sounds more like “win-win(s)”

      What do you think?

    • I like win win situations above all. I never like someone feeling like they are getting less because they compromised. Sometimes people equate compromise with negativity and I would rather keep a positive spin to it.

    • I hear you...I’m a win-win kind of person too.

      A long time ago I realized that I view compromise as a negative and now I rarely ever use the word.  I know it all comes down to perception.  

      I am going to challenge myself to see if I can find a way to view compromise as a positive...thanks for the inspiration.

    • Love this, this is something we all need to try, I feel the world would be a much better place if we all tried to make the other feel good by giving more then we expect to get.
