6. Highest Goal/ Walk Away Position

You will never achieve a lofty goal unless you aim for it. Where would you like to come out? What would be ideal/ if you don’t reach it, you will surely never get it. At the very same time, know where your bottom line is. How much will you give up to make the deal? If you don’t face this hard question in advance, you may find yourself repeatedly lowering your expectations as the deal progresses. Be willing to walk at a certain point but decide where that point is before you start negotiating and write it down on the Planner.
