The Importance of Knowing When To Say No

 

 

The Importance of Knowing When To Say No

Success depends on getting good at saying no without

feeling guilty. You cannot get ahead with your own

goals if your always saying yes to someone else’s

projects. You can only get ahead with your

desired lifestyle if you are focused on

the things that will produce

that lifestyle.”

Jack Canfield, Self-Help Author and Success coach  

 

As I see it. . . . . . . .

The Importance of knowing when to say no

 

There are many demands made on your time . . . . and you are continuously being pulled in many directions. 

 

Some of the things that you’re being asked to do will help you in your career . . . . while others things are just the right thing to do. There are also other things that you’re asked to do, that will become time wasters and distracters on your success journey . . . . They have the capacity to take you off purpose . . . . and derail your success journey.

 

It’s importance to know what to say yes to . . . . and when you have to say no.

 

When you are asked to accept a task you have to ask yourself the following questions . . . .

 

Is it the best use of my time to undertake the task now? What is the positive impact on my life . . . . my career . . . . and will it bring me closer to my goals? Or is it the right thing to do? If the answer to the questions is yes then taking action will have positive an impact on achieving your goals? 

 

If the answer is yes it becomes a proactive activity that will assist you to continually to move closer to success, fulfilling your goals and dreams then you should strongly consider to doing the activity.

When the answer to the question is a no . . . . because you can see yourself being distracted from your purpose and being pulled off course. Or you can see yourself being moved further away from achieving your goals as a result of the activity . . . . then answer to the activity is no.  

 

The importance of knowing when to say no . . . . is by itself an activity. It becomes an activity of controlling your life’s direction through your decisions . . . . It will maximizing your activities to have a positive impact on your life and career and in achieving your goals.
