Are you overwhelmed by all the things you need to get done in your personal and business life? The solution is to exercise the restraint of committing to everything. You don’t have to say yes to everything to be a good person. Here’s how to let some of it go.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Make a list of everything you’ve currently said yes to and analyze them.
- Decide what you really want to focus on – what really matters.
- Practice saying no.
- Set boundaries around your time.
- Manage your brain and recognize that stress is coming from your thoughts. Your personal messaging is triggering the stress – not the work itself.
