Can you say No? …. and then do you say No?

Posted by Dhea on March 25, 2010

Hi all

It has been a long time since my last post and I think it has something to do with this topic. Saying No! Do you find yourself wanting to help everyone or saying Yes before you really have thought about it just so that you don’t hurt anyone’s feelings at the expense of yourself? Someone recently said to me learn to say No first with permission to change your mind… it is easier to do it that way than to do it the other way… that is saying Yes and then saying No…

How do you say no?

How do you preserve yourself?

What time management habits have you developed to help you remain balanced?

How do you fit everything In?

Clearing the decks now

Posted by Dhea on December 19, 2009

I was reading a few organising tips from many varied sources over the last week or two and many people suggest January is a great time to start clearing up the office/study and setting the goals. However one article suggested that you in fact do it all NOW… clear up your office, remove the clutter, sort and file, set the goals and in fact start working on them on them in January rather than making the start then… I have now finished most of my away from the office work so far for this year , aside from the occasional Christmas gift… so I too am going to do that this year, with the phone not ringing as often and more time between meetings and appointments this is a perfect time to do all that back-end work… , sort, file, change and set the goals now with a clean desk and start the year with a clear direction.

What do you prefer doing?List your tips here…
