When posed with a request we are invited to say yes or no.
If we say yes, we are saying no to something else. Once we say yes too many times, all those yeses become obligations and we become overwhelmed.
When we say no, we are saying yes to something else. If we say no too many times, all those no’s turn into missed opportunities and we become stagnant.
Knowing what we value helps determine how we respond: yes or no.
Otherwise other people’s values become more important than our own.
Let us say yes to less so we have space to do the impactful things we love today.
