How often do you say no during the day? Saying no can make space for something better. No will leave your mind free to allow for creativity. No will mean you have the time to finish something important.
Here’s a game you can play to see just how often you say yes vs no:
Take a small piece of paper or post-it and draw a T-chart on it. Label one side of the chart Yes. Label the other side No.
Keep it with you all day. Keep track of the times you say Yes or No to something (no cheating – derivatives of Yes or No count, too)
At the end of the day, reflect on how you did. What might be possible if you said, No more often?
What could you say No to today so that something better can happen?
You’ve got this.
