I say ‘no’ a lot.
I have to
because if I didn’t say ‘no’,
I’d spend my life
working on someone else’s agenda.
Hell, I have to say ‘no’
because there aren’t enough hours in the day
to do everything everyone requests from me.

Jim Camp, negotiation coach,
advises
“When you have a solid purpose,
when you are on a mission,
no takes on a whole new meaning.
Discovering and embracing
your purpose in life
makes decision making much more effective
- and, of course,
no is a decision that
will protect your purpose, your job
and your ongoing efforts.”

Say ‘no’.
Don’t make excuses.
Don’t say ‘maybe’.
Give a flat ‘no’ and move on.
