I think women have a hard time not apologizing their way into negotiations. We tend to back in to these conversations in a self-deprecating and ultimately self-defeating way.
You don't want to have to come into work on Monday already apologizing. I try to save my apologies for what I've done later in the week.
I wake at 5 or 5:30 most mornings, make myself a latte and grab a cookie, write until 10 or 11, go have my favorite meal, 'second breakfast,' or grab coffee with friends, or play basketball. Then, around noon, I begin apologizing via email for the manuscripts I can't get to.
Obama likes to quote great men but will never be a great man himself. I can't stand it when our leader goes around apologizing for who we are.
I just was apologizing for maybe being a little goofy.
