Know when to say “no”. We all have limited time. When asked to do something, or to help someone, think about why you would say yes. Think about what you have to give up to be able to say “yes” to a request. Does it take you away from your family? Does it take you away from something more important, something that affects other people? I am not talking about being selfish or putting your needs before the needs of others. Think through your answer when asked to help.
If you want to know “no” better, here is a great blog by Peter Bregman on the Havard Business Review site, http://blogs.hbr.org/bregman/2013/02/nine-practices-to-help-you-say.htmlShare with your social networks
