Believe in Our Goals Ourselves

We must treat our allies well, so they will continue to be our allies, and because it is the right thing to do. We must treat our opponents well, so that it is possible for them to become our allies, and because it is the right thing to do. If we treat our allies well and our opponents badly, we are not trying to achieve a goal, we are trying to win a power struggle. Both our allies and our opponents will know it and neither of them will think it is a good thing. Nobody wants to be a pawn. If we believe our goals are good, we must keep trying to convince our opponents and keep trying to include them in the work and in the reward. If we give up on our opponents, we obviously don’t believe that the goal is good for them, too. We prove that they were right to oppose us. We give up on our own goal.

Doing the Right Thing
and Achieving All Your Goals at the Same Time
