Here's the deal. You're always going to have people coming to you that want your time, your help...or some other asset of yours to assist them in the execution of whatever it is they are doing.
It's quite easy to fall into the trap of saying YES to everything. One thing you for SURE do NOT want to become is a YES MAN or YES WOMAN...one who constantly says YES to everything out there that comes your way.
It's easy to fall into that trap. And...the biggest problem is this. You end up helping everyone else out, but yourself. Your personal plan for success goes by the wayside as you continue to say YES to other things that come your way.
I learned several years ago the power of saying NO. Say NO to things that don't directly contribute to the execution of your plan. Say NO to people trying to steal your time away. Say NO if it doesn't get you one step closer to your goals. Saying NO actually helps you get to success FASTER, simply because you're saying YES to your plan and NO to anything that doesn't directly assist you in getting closer to yours.
One of the most powerful things you can do is learn to say NO.
Am I saying that you deny everything that comes your way? Absolutely not. You simply need to be aware of how easy it can be to say YES to something that has nothing to do with the execution of your personal business plan. And...literally, every moment counts.
Say NO to the plans of others that taking you off-track and further from the implementation and execution of your own business plan...so you can say YES to your own success.
