A ‘yes’ is like a boss. Even when it’s something you don’t mind doing for someone, or you actually enjoy doing, a ‘yes’ still has absolute control of your time and attention.
Even saying yes to things you care about and love still uses a portion of your limited time force.
That’s why it’s vital to give out yes’s very carefully, and no’s more easily.
Of course things aren’t cut and dry. The tricky bit is some yes’s are mandatory, or put more softy, worth doing because it brings joy in your relationships. These types of yes are best done with a smile on your face and later counterbalanced with your own things you want to say yes too.
Find yourself in a schedule of too many yes’s to things you have to do instead of things you wish you were doing, you’ll end up miserable, complainy and anything but great at parties.
A undesired yes is really just a half-yes, which isn’t a no, but rather a yes where you are wasting everyone’s time.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
