I started carrying a folded piece of paper in my pocket that read “No.” I’d pull it out when I needed a reminder that “No” is a perfectly acceptable answer. The best part was it had a period after the letter “o.”
I learned that I had fewer “Yes’s” in me than I pretended. I’d say yes when I meant maybe. I’d say maybe when I meant no, and I thought no was impolite until I learned that a hell yeah was so much better than a half hearted maybe. Learning to invest my yes’s fully in fewer areas makes the yes’s of my life way more fruitful.
What deserves a no?
Where are you saying maybe, but you know it should be no?
If you fully invested your yes in fewer things, how much greater might the results be?
