What if I said no?

It’s one of the hardest things to do in life — to say “No.” To invitations, to requests, to obligations, to whatever everyone else is doing. All of us regularly say yes unthinkingly, or out of vague attraction, or out of greed or vanity, or out of fear of disappointing a friend or acquaintance.

Roman philosopher Seneca wrote that if all the geniuses in history were to get together, none would be able to explain our baffling relationship with time. “We’re tight-fisted with property and money,” he writes, “yet think too little of wasting time, the one thing about which we should all be the toughest misers.”

Always think about what you’re really being asked to give. The answer is often a piece of your life, usually in exchange for something you don’t even want. In every situation, to every invitation or request, to everyone who asks for “just a little” of your time, ask yourself: What if I said no? If the answer is, “I’d be happier” or “No one would care,” then guess what? Say no!
