Saying no means saying yes!
Have you said no today?
Have you protected what is truly important to you by declining to engage in other things?
Think about it.
Sometimes it is just saying no to the voice in your head that says:
“You should be doing more.”
Other times is is setting clear priorities – and protecting them.
So, what is truly important today?
- Having dinner with your family
- Having a real conversation with someone
- Completing a project
- Being on time
- Staying on task
- Taking time to eat a healthy lunch
- Getting some exercise
- Getting to bed on time
What ever it is – choose to say YES to it and say no to what will keep you from achieving it!
Saying NO to something really means saying emphatically YES to what is truly important!
