Ever have a job you didn’t like? Or were totally bored with?

Maybe you liked your job in general, but had some tasks that were mundane or uninteresting.

We’ve all encountered this no matter who we are.

The big difference between the people who manage and the people who don’t has more to do with the way they approached the task.

I often say, “Your success has more to do with where you place your attention than your ability.”

When you’re faced with mundaneness, you can max out the experience or you can mail it in.

Join me today to get my take on the skill, yes, the skill, I’ve built to handle these situations. In fact, I use this skill to handle ALL my situations…

Here’s your offer. Let’s be generous. “100K,” says the employer.

You’re thinking whaaaa? Did I bomb the interviews, but they somehow are showing mercy by giving me an offer?

Now what?

We’ll, if it’s a lowball offer, you can totally crush it with my ultimate question. (Not to get sidetracked, but here’s that video from a year ago. Maybe you can watch that later.)

If it’s more in the ballpark-ish, but you’re a little bit bruised by the fact it ain’t raining dollar bills, you can make a counteroffer.

Please don’t make a counteroffer by citing market pay of which there is no such thing and the employer doesn’t care about. This is the equivalent of saying, “I just want more money because I do.”

Please don’t make a counteroffer because you’re moving to a big city where everything is four times the price. The cost-of-living index means nothing more than a food label.

Please, pretty please, don’t make a counteroffer by citing you deserve more because you have skills. So does everyone else. Their resumes totally say so. And no one ever lies about that stuff.

Make a counteroffer with a lucid, rational, well-thought-out argument that gets the employer’s eyes off your cost and staring at your value.

Learn how today!
