Episode 619: Start Saying No


On Today’s Show

Joe Calloway talks about what is often the most powerful step we can take in simplifying our lives: learning to let go and start saying “no.” As a matter of fact saying “no” is the most important part of taking constructive action. Many people might think the opposite – if you are going to get a lot done you need to say “yes” to everything. But if you say “yes” to everything and put everything in the category of being of super-important, then you’ll not get anything done. You’ll flail around in a hundred different directions. Learn what to say “no” to. It frees you to do the most important things, which are the most satisfying, the most productive, and how you make the greatest contribution.
