Sometimes we need to compromise with others to get something. For example, we gave up the work we liked for being togather with the one we love, we compromise with customers on the sales prices, usually we have to compromise with our boss on his decisions even if we don't like them... Do u think compromise is important in our life and will you do it if needed?

Yes, lucky, compromise is common in our lives. I think it's important, if we don't compromise all the time, it will be difficult sometimes. As you said, when my opinions are different with my boss', I'll let him know my thoughts, but I don't insist on it. Sometimes, my boss is more experienced than me. But I also will keep my bottom line. I cannot compromise when it reach my bottom line.

Hello OrangJuice, I really appreciate your opinion. Generally speaking, experienced bosses will carefully consider other's opinions when they make decisions. But I met a new overconfident supervisor recently, whose stupid ideas often add our workloads. I don't know how long I can stand up with her.

According to me compromise and adjustment are the two most important words in a relationship.One must be flexible enough to do one or both to maintain any good relationship.If partners can do it properly they remain associated for a long long time whether it be in business, marriage or any other joint venture.

Hi abhikmjmdr, thanks very much for your response. I would like to make compromise and adjustment when it is worthy, especially for my loved ones. But sometimes at work, you are easily to be regarded as the weak.

Compromise is a very good thing to do. Taking ideas from a number of people can often times to lead to a better idea. Everyone is happy because something from them was used and we may be better off in life. Compromise is a key component in my life. Many challenges have been met head on by finding a common ground. In fact, it was better off if one person completely got their way.
