Do you, your business or nonprofit ever struggle with a growing number of opportunities, ideas or needs to serve? I don’t know about you, but I am constantly approached for meetings, new opportunities to help people/organizations, and products/services that will “help” me. It can be paralyzing.
I will post on this again, but for now I want to leave you with a quick tip my friend Chris Paulk once shared with me. He gave me this advice when I was trying to decide between a current partnership and future opportunity. He simply encouraged me to say no, so I could say yes.
He went on to tell me that when we say no to one person, organization, meeting, etc, we are saying yes to others. The opposite is true as well. When we say yes to one opportunity, we are saying no to another (probably multiple others).
What do you need to say no to, so you can say yes to something else?
