Saying no is an important skill to develop at any stage of your career because it retains the most important asset in life: your time.


No is a decision. Yes is a responsibility.


Upgrading your no doesn't mean you'll never say yes. It just means you default to saying no and only say yes when it really makes sense.


To quote the investor Brent Beshore, “Saying no is so powerful because it preserves the opportunity to say yes.”
