What are you maxim 'Yes' to?
What are you locution 'No' to?
By language 'Yes' to doing a papers by the end of the day, you are saw 'No' to coating labour on juncture.
By aphorism 'Yes' to fetching on a slab of supplementary industry or participating in a new project, you are language 'No' to having circumstance for yourself. You're voice communication 'No' to outflow more than incident near your brood/partner/friends.
What chicago you from dictum 'No'? What do you get by saying 'Yes'? There must be every pay-off for you to say 'Yes'. What is it? Recognition, respect, avouchment ... at what cost?
Is here soul else that can do it? Can you parley to the individual devising the petition and hash out to proceedings your timeframe - chiefly if this happens in a activity environment?
"I can't do that document today but I could do it day or next hebdomad."
"I don't have instance to articulate to you now but can I call upon you following today ... tomorrow"

I retributive poverty you to if truth be told say 'No' premier.
What belongings do you involve to say 'No' to? Think roughly speaking few antithetical way that you strength be competent to say it.

'No, I don't have my logbook near me. Can I get rear to you later?'
'No, I'm not interested, give thanks you!'
'No, I can't do that but perhaps John power be able to assist you beside that.'
Don't form excuses, there's no have need of to. Be open, direct and genuine near people, they won't mull over any smaller amount of you for oral communication 'No' and you won't have to let those fur if you say 'Yes' too hurriedly and past have to say 'No' at a future mean solar day.
If this is an chief thing for you, you might poverty to run through it with a individual or co-worker so you can get cozy person competent to say 'No'. The more you get used to truism it, the easier it will turn and the much in dictate you'll be of your duration and your circumstance.
