The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. —Tony Blair
On Today’s Episode:
- Living in a “yes” world
- Creating boundaries in order to continue growth
- Saying “yes” to too many things will cause a loss of productivity
- Harnessing the power of saying no
- Valuing your time
- Being either the curator or the victim of your own calendar
Saying “no” can be hard, especially in today’s “yes” world. Knowing your priorities and boundaries are critical parts of learning (and practicing) saying “no” to things that do not serve your time well. The most important takeaway from today’s discussion is that if you do not take the time to curate your own calendar, someone else will end up doing it for you.
Question: What are three things you currently say yes to that you should stop doing? How can you work towards that goal?
