Once we decide what is important in our lives, the rest suddenly becomes less important. Then it’s time to say no to the things that don’t matter – the things that take up our precious time and energy. Learning to say the small but powerful word, no, is critical to success!
We grew up with the word no – some more than others. We may hear lots of no’s but how good are we at saying no to others? Many find it extremely difficult to say no in fear of letting others down. But if pleasing others means limiting your own personal growth then it’s time to put yourself first and say no.
WHY not say yes?
- You can’t say yes to everything – think capacity!
- Not everything is worth a yes – think value!
- Sometimes it’s not the right time to say yes – think right choices!
WHAT are we saying no to?
By saying no to things of low value we free up time, energy and money for the right stuff – the high value things that matter. This is one of the greatest tools of highly productive people. Of course when we say no it doesn’t mean it doesn’t get done – just not now and not by you. Clever people know that Having It All is not doing it all!
WARNING! Don’t forget to say YES – just be super discerning when you do. It’s about your return on investment for every YES. Remember every no brings you closer to a YES!
