Many successful people, such as Warren Buffett and Dave Ramsey, extol on the virtues of saying no.
Saying no is indeed important, especially when your timetable is filled with productive tasks.
But what about most of us? Whose time table is usually empty, if we even have one to begin with.
We should say no only when we have more important tasks on hand. And when we can’t accept anymore. Tasks that will bring us success and significant results. Also, say no to parties and coffeetable chit chat sessions when you have important things to do.
Not when we are free.
Say yes to opportunities.
Looking at most of our schedules, perhaps we must learn to say no to ourselves, especially when we spend so much precious time doing those useless and time-wasting activities.
