Win-Win vs. Compromise


Most of us think about succeeding in terms of someone else failing --
that is, if I win, you lose; or if you win, I lose.
Life becomes a zero-sum game.
...
Win-win sees life as a cooperative arena, not a competitive one.
Win-win is a frame of mind and heart that constantly seeks
mutual benefit in all human interactions.
Win-win means agreements or solutions are mutually beneficial and satisfying.
- Stephen R. Covey

All compromise is based on give and take,
but there can be no give and take on fundamentals.
Any compromise on mere fundamentals is a surrender.
For it is all give and no take.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

Don't compromise yourself.
You are all you've got.
- Janis Joplin

If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable,
you disconnect yourself from what you truly want,
and all that is left is compromise.
- Robert Fritz

In matters of style, swim with the current;
in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
- attributed to Thomas Jefferson
