Don`t lose your sense of humour. Sometimes a joke can break tension or lift everyone`s spirits when they have become obsessed about tricky situations to which there is no obvious answer. If everyone insists on standing firm, then it could end up in a stalemate. No one will be willing to give way. You are more ambitious, keen to aim for a more prominent position, but you will have to watch that you don`t overplay your hand or push a step too far too fast.
