The Elusiveness of Self EsteemHave you ever noticed how elusive the concept of self esteem is? One minute you have it, the next moment you don’t. Self esteem comes and goes and tends to depend on what you are doing, who you are with and/or where you are at the moment. When you do something well, you feel good about yourself when you fail at something, you feel negative and beat yourself up..
The clearer your strategy before the negotiations, the more successful you will be. At the core of the negotiations strategy is what I refer to as the Ts of Negotiating: Trust, Time, and . More trust you and the other party have in each other, the less need there will be to negotiate.
It not entirely our fault. As we moved from an active, agricultural lifestyle to one of offices and automated transport, every aspect of our day, from our meals to our jobs and our entertainment, have been adapted with one priority in mind: our comfort. Where our ancestors spent the large bulk of their waking hours on the go, modern life entails sitting for as much as half the day (and that’s not counting sleeping)..
I matched with a girl on CMB last Friday, we ended up going out for coffee on Sunday. Things took a really interesting turn prior to the date, she was managing some stuff, and so we had the date set for 2. Around 1:30 or so she actually calls me, and tells me it going to take longer, she apologies and we planned for 3..
Also, instead of being printed on the back of the iPhone 3G, the device’s serial number is printed directly on the SIM card tray. You must eject the phone’s SIM card tray and remove the SIM card to see the serial number. The SIM card tray is located along the top edge of the iPhone 3G..
I fought like hell against making any changes, because I had it all good career, good marriage, good home, good family. I was terrified of changing things, terrified of screwing up a good thing. But the more I tried to ignore things, the more agitated I got.
The oldest SPL club were founded in 1869. They won their only Scottish league title in1965 and have lifted the Scottish Cup three times, most recently in 1997. In 1967 they got to the semi finals of the Inter City Fairs Cup. But I think a similar plan for the SPL would be warmly welcomed by at least one set of supporters in Scotland.Hands up all the Pittodrie punters who would relish the prospect of Aberdeen going to play in Auckland, Shanghai or Timbuktu.The 4 1 CIS Cup thrashing in midweek was yet another kick in the haw maws for the long suffering supporters but the prospect of facing Bayern Munich on Valentine’s Night is awee result.Just think, lads, you won’t have to fork out for a romantic meal, a bottle of champagne or red roses . But you will still get humped.At Tynecastle on Wednesday, one frustrated Dons fan chucked a coin on to the pitch (no hoary old jokes, please, about it actually being an IOU) and it struck referee Iain Brines.The game was then held up while Aberdeen chairman Stewart Milne ran on to the park to try to pocket it.Seriously, though, I’m surprised to hear about this scatter cash approach from the Aberdeen support as I thought every penny was a prisoner right now.You see, I can exclusively reveal that in a desperate bid to have their games called off, the fans have organised a whip round to buy the playing surface at Fir Park.After a rather long lay off, I can’t wait for today’s game at Fir Park. But considering I’m writing this column on Friday afternoon, I better not tempt fate.Knowing our recent luck with the weather, the stadium has probably been hit overnight by a tsunami.Right now, the Motherwell pitch is a bit like Mags Hainey it has had a mini makeover but still looks hellish.And if you thought Georgios Samaras’ orange boots at Rugby Park were a little bit different wait until you see the Motherwell boys today.
