Say NO! Just Do It…
Q. Is that really OK? A. Yes.
Q. Isn’t it rude? A. No.
Q. Won’t it make someone feel bad or even worse force them to have to say YES to our No? A. No.
How do we maneuver this with Grace?
- Clear communication about when you’re available and for what.
How do we avoid being out of integrity?
- Answering with “maybe”, that’s not a clear communication.
- Answering with “I’ll get back to you”, and not following up is not a clear communication.
Don’t be afraid to say NO…as a result of a clear NO your YESES will be so much more appreciated.
Principle 42. Jack Canfield keeps it simple…JUST SAY NO!
