Top-Notch Performance. We all would like to be top, don't we? We want to be loved, praised, and pointed out as an example, preferably for something that was well done. There are usually two ways to share information: We could build up tension "bottom up," use logical argumentation and step by step approach the point we want to make. Or we may just go "top down" and come straght to the point, pushing at the door "like a bull at the gate – mit der Tür ins Haus fallen," which is preferable in circumstances of limited time, impatience, or low attention.
