Just like your real bank account, you make a series of deposits and withdrawals with people everyday. Deposits increase the balance; withdrawals reduce it.
15 Always keep “the main thing” the “main thing.” Put “first things” first. Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least. Habit #3
16 Win-win means seeking solutions that allow everyone to win Win-win relationships come from seeing the “third alternative” The key is to stay in the communication process Habit #4 Think Win/Win
