Why A Week Of Saying No Wasn’t That Hard

Many people thought last week’s challenge of saying no to almost everything sounded, if not impossible, at least unwise.

After all, don’t successful people say yes to everything and take chances?

Well, yes and no.

“There is a flip side to saying no,” says senior editor Erin Schulte, who participated in this week’s challenge. “It means you are saying ‘yes’ to something else more important to you. I’m okay with that trade-off.”

“I think there are seasons of ‘no,’ and seasons of ‘yes.’ A challenge like this is a good reason to evaluate or reevaluate which one you might be in,” she explained.
