Okay, so saying no is hard. I mean, it's just two letters (N-O), but dude. It's hard.
I've got to get better at this, I think. I'm just always saying yes to everything that crosses my inbox. Here's why: I'm worried I won't be building a bridge I want later on. The problem is, I don't know which bridges I want/need for later on. How can I see the future?
And so I say yes to everything.
But that can only last for so long. And then I'm completely burned out. And then my bridges start burning. (ha ha!) No, seriously. I have to say no. And I can only hope that the bridge will wait to be built at a later time.
What about you? Do you find it hard to say no? How do you decide what to say yes to?
