How many times do you tell people no in the course of a day? Once? Dozens? Or..never. Recently, I was speaking with a friend about my current projects. Specifically, about how I need to back pedal on some of the volunteer and non-profit projects I have going on. She said something that has resonated with me over the past week: “every time you tell someone ‘yes’ you are saying no to yourself.”
So, before you make tough decisions about how and who you should tell no, think about yourself, your business, your family, and your goals being on the receiving end of that no. (yikes!).
