Be willing to say okay

Very often, life is a clash of interests and knowing when to advance yours or back pedal is a needed skill.

Understand the dominance hierarchies in your social orbits and be willing to say “okay” even if you don’t agree with a boss, spouse or parent.

Merely saying “okay” even though you might not necessarily agree with the decisions other people might be trying to make for you diffuses tensions that arise out of an interest clash, particularly if the person to which you are saying “okay” has an edge over you in terms of social relations.
