Transcript:

Every time you say yes to something that is unimportant, you are saying no to something that is important.
“Yes men” and “Yes women” never create anything great. There’s huge value in getting good at saying no.
Saying no to the friend who wants to meet over coffee to gossip. Say no to the co – worker who wants to spread his negativity and cynicism. Say no to the relative who laughs at your dreams and makes you doubt yourself. Say no to the social obligations that drain time from your life’s work.
Every time you say yes to something that is unimportant, you say no to something that is important.
You can’t be all things to all people. The best among us get that. Know your priorities. Know your goals. Know what needs to get done over the coming weeks, months and years for you to feel that you played your best game as a human being. And then say no to everything else. Sure some people around you might not be happy. But would you rather live your life according to the approval of others or aligned with your truth and your dreams?
