Just say no

off all the things in the recent article 8 things the world's most successful people all have in common, the one that's been the hardest to adopt is the "just say no" policy.

"saying no" means, in various forms:

  • saying good bye to opportunities
  • being negative
  • possibly shutting down future opportunities

    but on the other hand, "saying no" means "saying yes" to:

  • what i want to do
  • maximizing my time on efficient things

    in other words, "saying no" is simply just "saying yes to focus". and focus is one of the most powerful things in productivity.
