Learning to Say No

Have you ever wanted to say NO? 

We all want to say NO to something. The challenge is how?

Saying NO is a skill all leaders must develop. 

Many leaders are good at saying yes. In fact, we say yes so often that we leave little room for the things that really matter. We push ourselves to get more and more accomplished—and this often comes at the cost of letting down our loved ones.

In our minds, the challenge is how to sort (and complete) our overflowing to-do list. But the real challenge is to create a list of things to stop doing instead.

Imagine if we learned to say NO to the things we don’t really want or need, and YES to the things we do. Your success will not come from keeping more things in motion, but from your discipline to release those things that no longer serve you.
