Learn How to say NO

Learning how, and when to say no, takes practice, especially if you're someone who's honestly interested in helping other. Here are some tips to helps you to say NO.

  • Try and lose the guilt. By all means, be generous in helping others but let it be within the bounds of what you're capable of.
  • Make sure you fully understand requests before you agree to anything.
  • Avoid a culture of consensus. Often, we agree to do things to make people happy and on our side. Unfortunately this isn't always beneficial.
  • Stick to your plans. If saying yes to something throws your plan to get something done way off, make sure you question if it's worth it.
  • The best intentions might not have the best outcomes. Even if you feel you are helping by agreeing to take on a task you may be actually hindering other task from getting done.
