I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have a hard time saying no. Someone comes to me with a seemingly small job, or I just really support their cause…and I say, “Yes, I can help you with that!” Then I end up biting off more than I can chew and get buried.
Unfortunately, it’s not always as easy as just saying the word: No. If it were, we Type A entrepreneurs and business professionals wouldn’t have an issue with taking on too much. We’d just look at our calendars, see that we’re too busy, and then not take on any more projects.
