A VITAL AREA. THEREFORE, IT PAYS TO BECOME A "MASTER" AT IT!!!!!!!
MY RELATIONSHIP CREATION NOTEBOOK
Part I - Finding, selecting, planning and managing the relationship effectively
Whenever an area is of vital importance, it pays to "master" it, rather than bumble around and leave it up to chance. Yet most people leave it up to chance. It is absolutely necessary to plan ahead to make it happen. Develop this plan first, but notice as you do it that other areas of relationship are involved, along with personal psychology. You may go to those sections and read up on what is of relevance and interest as you go or you can simply note them or print them for later reference.
The next stage after this "relationship creation" notebook is to actually go to the "Our Relationship Notebook" where the complete relationship creation is provided.
