Agree to have that cup of coffee

According to Bloomberg Technology: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg whatsappfirst reached out to WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum in early 2012, inviting him for coffee. They ended up talking for more than two hours. That turned into five days of negotiations this past week and became an agreement this week to acquire the mobile-messaging startup for $19 billion in cash and stock. Granted, we would all say sure if Zuckerberg asked us to grab a coffee, but remember this story the next time someone says, “Hey, wanna grab a cup of coffee or lunch and talk about (fill in the blank) this week?”

Always defer to yes and see what happens,
