If we want to become organized, we need to say NO any time that it conflicts with what we need to do and what we’ve planned.
Saying no is something that Organizationally Gifted people never have a problem with. They immediately say they need to check their planner to see if they can say yes to anything impending, or just out and out say NO if they realize a specific date they have something scheduled.
We don’t have a problem saying no when we need to do things like go to work, or to an appointment that we have, but if we are doing “nothing” if there is nothing planned… we feel like we should say yes to every request.
There is nothing further than the truth.
It isn’t selfish to take time for yourself; it isn’t wrong to turn down a request because we have things to do at home, like yard work, dejunking or even relaxing!
In this day and age of 9-5, commuting, children’s activities that often run the household… there is only one way to take care of the home: to make it a priority.
Organizationally Gifted people don’t have a problem with this at all and we never get upset when they tell us we have to wait for an answer.
In this video, I help you see how you don’t have to have a problem with it either, along with the motivation to say no with no sense of guilt attached.
I’d love to hear what you think about the video. Please leave a comment and let me know!
