Saying Yes When You Mean it!
How often do you catch yourself saying YES and regretting it? It’s important to make sure you are saying yes when you mean it. In the spur of the moment, it’s easy to say yes to be nice, out of guilt, or because you feel you don’t have a choice.
Once reality hits and you are driving home, you say to yourself “Oh my gosh, what did I just commit to doing?” Does this sound familiar?
I want you to start focusing on saying YES when you mean it! To do this, follow these two important requirements:
Fist off, never say YES immediately. Always give yourself at least 24 hours before making a decision. Allow yourself to digest the requirements, look at your calendar, and talk with your team members or spouse. Think about whether or not it is a good fit. How does it work with your current goals?
Next, release the guilt. Sometimes people want to guilt you into saying yes with guilt trip language by mentioning we are all busy. Keep in mind, your not a bad guy by saying no. You have to be strong and say now is just not the right time and be OK with saying no. Be Strong and do what WORKS for you!
