It isn’t easy—or fun—saying “no.”
Think about the last time you told your kids they couldn’t have that toy they saw in Target while you were running errands. The car ride home would have been much more pleasant had you say “yes,” wouldn’t it?
Saying “no” to colleagues, clients or your boss isn’t any more enjoyable.
We hate to let people down or seem as though we can’t handle an additional project. We always want to be that go-to, can-do colleague.
