Just Say No!

Just Say No Jason Santa Maria

I love this video. Listen to Jason Santa Maria, especially if you’re a freelancer. This talk is a bit counter-intuitive to how we are programmed to say yes to everything that comes our way. From past experience I relate a lot to what Jason has to say, and think there is a ton of wisdom in his viewpoint. Your time is non-renewable. Treat it as such. Is saying no a no-no like we have always heard, or is Jason on to something? What do you guys think?

      “You say no to something so that you can says yes to other thing.”

      This one strike me at the heart, because we often think that if we want success, we have to say ‘yes’, and forget the importance of ‘no’ word.

      Thank you for very nice video!
