Ten Tips for Negotiating in 2016

The ability to negotiate successfully in today’s turbulent business climate can make the difference between success and failure. With this in mind, Ed has reevaluated his list of top ten negotiation tips. Here are Ed Brodow’s Ten Tips for Successful Negotiating updated for the year 2016:

1. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. Successful negotiators are assertive and challenge everything – they know that everything is negotiable. I call this negotiation consciousness. Negotiation consciousness is what makes the difference between negotiators and everybody else on the planet.

Being assertive means asking for what you want and refusing to take NO for an answer. Practice expressing your feelings without anxiety or anger. Let people know what you want in a non-threatening way. Practice ‘I’ statements. For example, instead of saying, “You shouldn’t do that,” try substituting, “I don’t feel comfortable when you do that.”

Note that there is a difference between being assertive and being aggressive. You are assertive when you take care of your own interests while maintaining respect for the interests of others. When you see to your own interests with a lack of regard for other people’s interests, you are aggressive. Being assertive is part of negotiation consciousness.

“Challenge” means not taking things at face value. It means thinking for yourself. You must be able to make up your own mind, as opposed to believing everything you are told. On a practical level, this means you have the right to question the asking price of that new car. It also means you have an obligation to question everything you read in the newspaper or hear on CNN. You cannot negotiate unless you are willing to challenge the validity of the opposing position. 继续阅读 »

在VMWARE PLAYER中体验UEFI

现在的笔记本、台式机,都不用BIOS,改成用UEFI了。

想要体验下UEFI但又不想在搞砸自己的系统咋办?

当然是在免费的VMWARE PLAYER里面使用UEFI了!

但是UEFI默认在VMWARE PLAYER里面是关闭的。这个时候就需要使用这个OpenSource的工具了:

VM_TWEAKER

vmtweaker

打开这个Enable “efi” BIOS boot type,你就可以体验UEFI了。

 

替代Ghost的备份软件

现在磁盘分区升级成GPT,主板引导也变成EFI。虽然可以用Ghost 11.5,但是感觉不大好用…

研究了一下,推荐Macrium Reflect。简单易用的操作界面,备份、克隆速度也不错!

关键还是免费软件~ 🙂

这下满意了吧?

WordPress更新需要输入FTP账户?

最近在Ubuntu上安装LAMP,并假设Wordpress。发现权限无论怎么设,除非设置为执行Apache的用户,才能避开这个问题。

弄了半天,最后发现在wp-config.php里面加入这句话可以解决这个问题:

define('FS_METHOD', 'direct');

如何在Windows10安装以后打开AHCI

在安装完Win10以后,才发现居然没有打开硬盘的AHCI模式。怎么办?
