How to Say No and Take Back Your Life

In this brilliant 3-minute video, business coach Christy Wright describes a great approach to determining what projects and tasks align with your priorities. It's one of my favorite videos on the internet.

Great nuggets:

  • "Create qualifiers so that you’re managing your time and commitments instead of your time and your commitments managing you."
  • "Just because someone needs does not obligate you."
  • "No one else is entitled to your life, or your time, or your commitments, or your money, or your skills."
