Every day we face decisions, large and small.
We often feel like we need to learn to say ‘no’ more often. That by saying ‘no’ more often we can successfully manage our careers and build a balance between our home and work commitments. What if saying ‘yes’ is a better choice? Of course, we can’t say ‘yes’ to everything – every request, idea or opportunity. However, there are times that a ‘yes’ can lead to amazing opportunities, relationships and experiences that we could not have had without, first, saying, “YES!”
