In one of my recent coaching sessions my client said something that was very profound. He said, "If you say "yes" to X you're saying "NO" to Y". That really made a ton of sense to me. I've worked with so many people and so many of them seem overloaded. Being overloaded is stressful and overwhelming which isn't healthy or much fun. What we don't realize is that every "yes" means "no" to somthing else. It can also mean more to do in our life. So before you say "yes" decide what you're going to say "no" too. If you're stressed that's because with every "yes" you're not saying "no" to something else. This is a very simple strategy but effective and powerful. Think before saying "yes" and your life will be better.
