The Power of NO

One of the hardest words for us to say


I became overwhelmed

"I'm busy" I'd say. "I have to do too many things." I was too involved. Not because of work. Because I always said yes.

There is a lot of opportunity in YES

There is so much value in saying "yes." It's what makes saying no so difficult. I didn't want to miss out.

Even when looking at the marginal value

The marginal value of each things I said yes to in reality was small. But in my mind, the opportunities were huge.

I had to determine my true values.

Focus on what's important.

Say no to everything else. A polite no. But still no.

It was difficult at first.

But over the long term it has helped.

I am more focused. I get more done.
