Saying yes to important things

with one comment

I attended a talk today on the art of saying no and a couple things stood out:

  • saying yes to important things makes it easier to say no to less important things, ie prioritize
  • if the impact of requested work is unclear, request clarification before agreeing to do the work

This reminded me of something a colleague once mentioned: part of the art of saying no effectively is making everyone aware of the costs
