The year to say No

Or the month, week, or day.

When doesn’t matter.

What matters is that you learn to say No.

What matters is that you get comfortable saying No.

What matters is that when you say Yes, it’s only because you’ve said No enough times that you can now allow yourself the time for those things to which you mindfully committed to an action, a decision or your attention.

You can always go the extra mile and learn to say No by default, therefore removing a lot of the decision making process that goes on in your brain, focusing your precious time on those important things you keep pushing off due to all the things you used to say Yes to.

There were times when we thought saying Yes was the key to success, but success without balanced happiness becomes the perfect recipe for destruction.

Saying No means you can define very concretely what do you want to say Yes to — which also allows you to build efficiencies around it, rather than having to keep shifting the attention gears.

Saying No primes you to stay in control of your destiny and becomes a rooting element to stay mindful, giving you quality ingredients where to find calm.

Give it a try, say No.

What’s the worst that can happen?

Pura vida.
