I’m one of those people who tends to say YES to everything. ✅ No matter the responsibility, task, effort or time involved. The thought of saying NO to someone asking for help always seemed a bit selfish and hard to do to me. 😏
But lately I’ve been thinking about that. 🤔
Not only do these YES(es) take a hell of a lot of my time ⏳, but many times they also do not bring any personal joy or improvement.
On top of that, very frequently those help-me-individuals do not even appreciate my efforts. 🙏 Or they want to take my arm, while I’m giving them a hand. Ugh.
Don’t get me wrong – I do say NO 🛑 , I just think that I do not do it often enough. I do not mean that we should start saying NO to everyone, all the time. I merely advice you to recall all the unnecessary YES(es) that could easily represent a lot of your time and productivity.
It’s important that we all, especially entrepreneurs, use the word “NO” and are aware of its importance.❗ It means we have got our personal or business priorities straighten up and our boundaries set.
We just have to find the right balance that works for us. ⚖ Good luck juggling! 🤹 😎
