I’ve had to say no to a lot recently. This is always hard for me because I’m a people-pleaser. And I love to start new projects.
But I’ve learned that saying no is really just a matter of priorities. If I say yes to everything, I’m really not saying yes to anything.
In the end, it’s a matter of discipline. Just like exercising, or band rehearsal, or studying for exams.
The good news is, with practice, saying no does get easier.
The bad news is, I don’t think it every really gets easy.
But that’s okay. Looking back, the hard stuff is always the sweetest.
