Using the 5/25 Rule to Learn to Say “No”

I get the point about saying “no” when it is the right thing to do, but I have a very fulfilled life in large part BECAUSE of the things I have said “yes” to. I have had several successful businesses, I have bought and sold three houses that I made money on, I have a lovely, talented wife (my best YES) and I enjoy life because of the many yeses I have given.

I certainly understand the benefit of saying NO, especially when a yes is what is expected but NOT what you want to say. But don’t stop saying yes just because of past mistakes.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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