Just say No….

People often ask me: “How is it Ash that you get so much done?

You always seem to be in control – never rushed, never stressed and always seem to be on top of things. (I’ve got to tell you, it’s not always the case) but in fairness I do have an ability to make sure I focus on the things that are important to me…

And there’s one word I’ve discovered that enables me to do that

One word

And the word is…

No…

If you’re anywhere near my sort of age, you may remember a T.V programme called Grange Hill and a character called Zammo. Now, this isn’t about drugs but it is about people asking you to do things…

“Ash, would you mind doing that for me?”

“Ash can you do this?”

“Ash, would it be okay if?”

Errr…

No…

You see; if it’s not going to move me toward me towards my goals or move me towards the direction I’m headed right now…

Why should I?

So say no or at worst say “not now”

And see what that does to your productivity…
