No is the hardest word in the English language for me to master. (Ignore my kids howling in protest) When people ask me a question it’s like I am in an improve group and my answer is always YES!
I need to learn to say no.
No, I will not be involved in your new idea.
No, I will not mentor you.
No, I will not write that code/build that website for your non-profit.
In most cases, it has absolutely nothing to do with you, or the validity of your idea. It has everything to do with my own mental health, and my happiness.
Please don’t be offended if you ask me to help and I say “I am honored that you asked but no, I cannot help.”
Trust me, it’s not you, it’s me.
Until next time,
I <3 |<
