WOTD: Compromise

Good morning and happy Friday everyone! We survived yet another week. How nice is it that we can finally relax and slowly get out of work mode and into party mode every end of the work week? For some, they already have made plans an entire week in advance. For other's, it more of ideas that just comes to mind that they embark on doing in that point in time. Some ideas that was already planned a week in advance might end up falling through at the last minute and now you have to think of something else, this comes down what we will be talking about today and that's the idea of compromising. Usually when we come up with an idea, say for the weekend or a business idea, we don't think about the "what'if's" we just come up with the idea and hope that it all works out when the time comes. With that state of mind, it creates a huge problem for individuals because it gives off the "it's my highway or the highway" mentality which is setting them up for failure if everything doesn't go as planned. So we always have to have a plan b just in case a crisis hits. 

Today's quote comes from Madeleine M. Kunin from BrainyQuotes  and she states that:

"Compromise, contrary to popular opinion, does not mean selling out one's principles. Compromise means working out differences to forge a solution which fits the diversity of the body politic"

My interpretation of this quote is that people get this misconception that to compromise means to throw away your original beliefs and ideologies but in fact it's the complete opposite. We make these compromises to better enhance the outcome of our situation. Just like Ms. Kunin said, "Compromise means working out differences to forge a solution which fits the diversity of the body politic". We have to sort our differences to create a solution to our current situation that's hindering us from moving forward.
