We only have so much time, energy, and attention.
Doing one thing means deciding not doing another.
Being somewhere means not being anywhere else.
Marrying one person means not marrying anybody else.
Watching one show means not watching others.
From the clothes we wear to the books we read to the food we eat.
Life involves making decisions.
Saying “yes” to some things and “no” to others.
Yet we often struggle to say “no”.
We consider saying “yes” a virtue.
As if always saying “yes” is admirable.
We overlook the power of “no”.
What value does our “yes” have if we never say “no”?
If we never ask, “how does this align with my best life?”
“How does this align with who I want to be?”
Paradoxically, the more we say “yes” to, the more we might miss.
The old “quality over quantity” cliche.
What if we used more discretion?
If we reserve our time, energy, and attention for only those things most worthy?
What might that life look like?
You are worthy of a most excellent life.
Consider how you’re using your “yes”.
You might start by assessing how you’re using your “no”.
You’ve got this.
