I have this posted in my office and at home to remind me that every time I say yes to something trivial I am saying no to something important
Every time you say “yes” to one thing, you are saying “no” to a million other things.
Saying yes to an evening of watching television is saying no to an evening of reading, socializing with friends, taking night classes, and almost any other productive activity.
The bigger your dream (what I call “The One Big Yes”), the more you will have to say no to other distractions and diversions in order to concentrate on that goal’s achievement.
What is your ONE BIG YES? And are you willing to say NO! to all the tempting little detours, diversions and distractions that the world will throw at you in the attempt to steal your attention away from what really matters?
