Can You Really Just Say No?

Posted on the 19 October 2011 by Lisa @Lisapatb
Do you find your days filled up to the max with things to do and not a moment to yourself? Can you say really say NO to some people? If someone calls you and asks you for a favor do you always respond "Sure, I can do that," as you stress how will I do that? Can You Really Just Say No? You owe it to yourself to have boundaries and just say NO. I cannot do that today or I cannot do that - I have other obligations. No apologies, no excuses, just NO. You will feel better after for not over extending yourself. Learning to say no is one of the keys to not burning yourself out. If you are burnt out how will you do what you need to do and help others? Saying NO can leave you refreshed and able to really get more done!
Can YOU say NO to the following questions?
  • Can you come to the party with me tonight?
  • Can you drop this off for me?
  • Can you watch Sally tonight?
  • Can you pick that up for me on the way?
  • Can you collect the money for this?
  • Can you also do this project too?
