Hahhaa, saying yes can be just as hard as saying no, saying yes to friends, support, help. That's a good topic for another day!

Yep. To be a little less facetious about my reply, this is genuinely good advice about saying No. I used to keep a spreadsheet which tracked my commitments, so that I would slow down on making them. I was able to keep up with my work, but without gaining more control over the time and expectations, I experienced too much stress.

For the most part, Mr. Cortisol isn't my buddy 😉

Thanks for kicking off the discussion
