When to Say Yes and When to Say No

When you’re first starting out, it’s hard to imagine a time when you’ll get the opportunity to say yes to something or that there will ever be a time when you’ll choose to say no. But both will happen, eventually. There is no single perfect way to know which is the right answer, but there are things to consider when you’re weighing your decisions.

For the record, I’ve said yes to things because I didn’t have the privilege of saying no to them. Declining an offer of work for money can, at times, be an absolute privilege. I’ve also benefited from more yeses than nos, but I think that’s likely true for many of us starting out. But even then, there are times when you still need to weigh your options.

In this episode:

  • This week’s episode is sponsored by QuickBooks Self Employed.
  • Spoiler: I can’t give you a checklist of when you should say yes you’ll do something or when you should decline. It’s too personal for that.
  • Saying yes
    • You’re excited to do it
    • It aligns with your goals
    • You have the time and energy — sometimes you’ll say yes when you don’t, but that’s usually when it aligns with your goals.
    • It feels right.
  • Saying no
    • You get a bad feeling about it
    • You’ve overloaded already
    • Your health won’t let you
    • You’re not interested in it
