Anytime you say “Yes” to something, you’re saying “No” to something else.
“Yes, I can take on that project” may mean
“No, I can’t spend time with you” or “No, I can’t do my best work on something else”.
“Yes, I’ll spend that money” may mean
“No, I can’t put extra towards my debt” or “No, I won’t be saving this month”
In the bigger picture, it may mean “No, I won’t be making progress towards my goals and dreams”.
We tend to focus on the “Yes” and overlook the “No’s” when making decisions about our limited resources–our time and our money.
I’d suggest we all take a step back and think about what we are saying “No” to when we are saying “Yes”. Once we consciously weigh that “No” then we can say “Yes” with a complete understanding of the impacts.
And if you say “Yes”, go all in – savor and enjoy that experience or purchase because you’ve decided it is worth it!
