“The key to a healthy ‘no’ is to remember the ‘yes’ that the ‘no’ is making space for.” Alan Cohen
Today’s Mind Bullet, Yes and No, is inspired by online “wisdom” that says the key to success is learning to say no . . . or yes.
Billionaire Warren Buffet is quoted as saying that the key to his success is saying no, because saying no creates focus and helps you set priorities. Richard Branson, on the other hand, attributes his success to saying yes to everything, because saying yes means you’re learning and growing.
So which is it? Yes or no? Don’t fall into the trap of dichotomous thinking. It’s not about always saying yes or always saying no. It’s about knowing when to say yes and when to say no.
Listen in to hear more about the dangers of dichotomous thinking, using your intuition to figure out when to say yes or no, and why there is a place for binary thinking, especially when it comes to tracking habits.
