Talking turkey


At some point … after all the posturing and positioning and smiles and grimaces, after the he saids and she saids, the partial or prejudiced interpretations, after doing every damn thing possible to talk up your end or talk down theirs … everything is on the table.

Now it’s time to talk turkey.

Buried at the heart, wrapped in opposing layers of excitement and disappointment, there’s always one key choice … A or B?

A looks like this – with all its upsides and downs.

B looks like this – with all it’s downsides and ups.

So which is it? A or B?

No one gets everything they want. It’s always sub-optimal.

In these circumstances, today, which is the best you can do?

Skippy Strategy: The fantasy is over. It’s time to deal with reality.
