There is only one way under high heaven to get anybody to do anything. Did you ever stop to think of that? Yes, just one way. And that is by making the other person want to do it.

     Remember, there is no other way.

     Of course, you can make someone want to give you his watch by sticking a revolver in his ribs. You can make your employees give you cooperation— until your back is turned—by threatening to fire them. But these methods have sharply undesirable repercussions.

     The only way I can get you to do anything is by giving you what you want.

     What do you want?

     Sigmund Freud, the founder of modern psychology, said that everything you and I do springs from two motives: the sex urge and the desire to be great.

     . . . What do you want? Not many things, but the few things that you do wish, you crave with an insistence that will not be denied.
