I am now a resolution-maker. So, this year, I am joining other resolution-makers as a celebratory act and vow to go into 2021 with an open mind and an open heart. And in making this vow, I want to have a plan to ensure that I stay committed to my resolutions. I would like the same for you too, so I am offering five steps to help you stay the course.
People come to you with their troubles, asking you for favors, and in an effort for you to continue being a good person, you continue to say "yes." Without realizing it, each time you agree to something, you pour a little (or a lot) of yourself out into that person or project. In my opinion, the only way to combat this habit of saying yes is to understand that keeping yourself available doesn’t make you a good person. And, saying no doesn’t make you a bad person.
