People will respect you and your ‘yes’ when you don’t give a ‘yes’ so freely.
Each day will present you with tons of opportunities, but you must say ‘No’ to most of them to use your time effectively and live a more balanced life. Once you start saying ‘No’ to things that may be wonderful but not the best use of your time, you’ll automatically be saying ‘Yes’ to things that matter most to you.
Set boundaries. So much of what we do is to please others – at the expense of our sanity and priorities.
Don’t say ‘Yes’ to all things shiny & new. Keep your goal clear. We don’t have to do every new idea out there. Be very selective.
