Learn to say “No”
Learning to say “No” gives you more time to say “Yes” to the important projects or activities that give you genuine satisfaction and optimise the use of your time and abilities.
You may need to evaluate your attitude towards saying “No”; some individuals are “people pleasers” and fear rejection or offending others if they say “No”.
Some fear they will not be asked again or fear not being needed.
Put these fears to rest.
Your goals and priorities help you identify the requests and activities requiring a polite “No” and those deserving an enthusiastic “Yes”.
