The Case Against Saying “No”


Most of our lives have been ruled by “no.”

In school – and later at work – we’re told “No, don’t do it that way. Do it this way”

Some business ‘experts’ suggest that we’d be better served if we said ‘no’ more often.

I respectfully disagree.

No – by definition – is negative. Nothing to base a career on.

I prefer yes…

I’ll help

I’ll join

I’ll teach

I’ll mentor

I’ll advise

Life is neither unilaterally ‘yes’ or ‘no.’

But I prefer to accentuate the positive.
