When Saying No Means Saying Yes


I have a confession to make. My weekly podcast, The Weekly Shufflepass, won’t be posted this week.

Not because I didn’t want to post one or because I had nothing to say. In fact, it wasn’t even because I decided not to. I simply decided to say yes.

  • I decided to use my dedicated content production time to knock out several work-related projects.
  • I decided to stay committed to getting a healthy amount of sleep and getting up early to exercise.
  • I decided to take advantage of a few once in a lifetime writing opportunities that spontaneously presented themselves.
  • I decided to attend my daughter’s soccer game, my son’s baseball game and the multiple family birthday parties this weekend.
  • I decided to say yes to pushing forward a new project Teresa and I are working on together as a couple.
  • I decided to say yes to giving my content manager a break as she recovered from a car accident and subsequent delivery of her new son.

I said yes to quite a few, very important, things this weekend, but, that meant saying no to a couple of other things I really wanted to get done.

That’s ok, though. Sometimes yes means saying no.

What is it in your life that you should be saying no to in order to? Do you do it, or, do you put yourself in a frenzy?
