Yesterday, I shared Rule #1 of How To Say No With Ease and how those experts in “pester power” can suck up all your time.
In case you didn’t get a chance to read it yet,
Rule #1 is Know The Value of Your Yes.
Today, I’d like to share:
Rule #2: Size of Ask x Time = # of Yes(es) possible…
Size of Ask: Those experts in “pester power” have “center-of-the-universe’itis” and they most often think they are being perfectly reasonable in asking just one more favor of you.
Time: How often have you heard “It will only take a minute…” and learned that nothing ever takes just a minute. Remember, we all have 24/7. There is only so much time and yes, you do have to sleep.
To remake my point from Rule #1 Know The Value of Your Yes. Your “yes(es)” are those people, places and things that are important enough to you that you want to share your most limited resource with – your time! Too often we only give lip service to what and who is important to us.
Value your “YES” AND YOUR TIME first.
Think about where not knowing how to say “No” has put you and your business or career now, and where you want to be in 30-days, 6 months, even a year from now, what would it take to get you there?
I’m serious – Share below, I’d love to know.
