You’re meeting someone for the first time.
You have pre-conceptions of the person (he’s nice, she’s arrogant, he’s rich, she’s friendly).
You have pre-conceptions of the outcome (he’ll invest, she’ll sign up, he’ll join, she’ll say yes).
If you take those pre-conceptions into the meeting, you will damage the meeting.
You won’t form the right impression of the person, and you won’t find the right outcome.
Clear your mind of pre-conceptions.
Don’t jump to conclusions before a meeting.
