Read it

Oh all right, I am going to stop trying to look at this journal as private and now and then assume that others do read it on occasion. And I'll ask questions or offer suggestions or whatever.

Today's recommendation: read Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion, by Robert B. Cialdini, Ph.D. This book tells you how people influence other people in every part of life. I think it should be required reading in every high school or college. I can't take credit for discovering it. striver recommended it highly to me. It is written in an easy-to-read style but is not fluff. Nice combination. And really revealing. I thought I knew a little about persuasion but this one shows me I was just touching the tip of that iceberg. The book, paperback, is about $12 at Amazon (of course shipping is four bucks, so ya gotta work things out, maybe go to your local bookstore instead).
