NO is a strategy to finish what you started.
When we want to finish what we started NO can be a good strategy to adopt. We often try to please everyone. We can’t say no. Even if we feel overwhelmed we insist on reaching out to help.
People may make you feel that you should not say no, but there are times when you have to say no.
You may recall we looked at managing your time. So, knowing where and how you spend your time daily and weekly helps you to say no to things that are not priority or that do not add value. If you do not do this, a lot of your time would be spent on the activities that really do not contribute to your business or to your way forward in life.
Saying no helps you to focus on finishing what you started, instead of stopping to do things that do not relate to what you had planned, you then lose your trail of thought and you cannot finish what you started.
Saying No is not being disrespectful but asking how important the task you are being asked to do is, or can it be completed at another day or time or can someone else assist with it.
So today before you are asked for help think carefully about your responses, recognizing that NO is a great strategy to keep you moving forward.
