Pep Talk: Stop Saying Yes To Everything

August 18, 2020

Please, for the love of everything that is good, stop saying yes to stuff you should be saying no.

When you say no to someone, you are saying yes to yourself, and you should be doing it more. 

Be intensely protective of your time and energy; it's a finite resource.
