In the last two weeks, I’ve had a slew of PR opportunities come my way but for design, not for speaking, coaching or writing. Now, ordinarily I would simply pursue these openings, but I realized that it was not in alignment with my current desired experiences or path and said “NO.” It wasn’t easy but it was a relief when I did because it affirmed that I am on track and on purpose, and it also meant that the resources that would have been needed would be available for new opportunities that are a fit for me. It is often difficult for us to slow down long enough, and get clearly focused enough, to say yes to only those opportunities that truly align us with our path and our purpose. Often we scatter our efforts and our resources with the thinking that any opportunity is a good one. It isn’t. Just as not every client is a fit, nor is every project. Once you get truly clear, concise and targeted, you will find that your efforts will deliver far greater results in far less time.
What can you say “NO” to that will mean a “YES” to your success?
