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.
