“…really successful people say no to almost everything.”

What are the parameters that define success in this maxim?

Is it a successful business person?

It seems to be communicating that a successful person is clear about who they are/want to be and what they are willing/able to be responsible for/included in. When an individual is super clear about those 2 topics there are many more opportunities to say no than yes when s/he sticks to her/his design.

Or, the one who can say no the most, makes the most money?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
