Saying Yes Requires Saying No First

Say No to Say Yes

Have you ever wanted to say yes to a request, but couldn’t because of your current obligations?

You wanted to say yes. But, you were already overbooked.

Frustratingly, when you examine the items you are bogged down with, they are less important that the one you want to say yes to.

To prevent this situation, you have to say no before you can say yes.

Spend Less Time Making Decisions and More Time Owning Them

Make Decisions and Own them

“Where do you want to go for lunch?”
“I don’t know. Where do you want to go?”
“I don’t know. Wherever you want.”
“I don’t care.”

This conversation happens too often.

If you can’t make simple decisions, how are you going to make the tough ones?

We all know the “late rush.”

It’s not fun.

Hurrying to that next meeting. Driving too fast to an appointment. Or even doing less than your best work on a deliverable that is now overdue.

When was the last time you were early? To a meeting? With a deliverable? Or reaching a goal?

You might be wondering, “How early is early anyway?”
