To stay productive, and minimize stress, you have to learn the Gentle Art of Saying No — an art that many people have problems with. Well, to start with, it can hurt, anger or disappoint the person you’re saying “no” to, and that’s not usually a fun task.
Second, if you hope to work with that person in the future, you’ll want to continue to have a good relationship with that person, and saying “no” in the wrong way can jeopardize that.
It’s a simple fact that you can never be productive if you take on too many commitments — you simply spread yourself too thin and will not be able to get anything done, at least not well or on time.
There are so many ways a relationship can fail, it’s amazing that we aren’t all alone.The worst part is that the longer you are apart, the more you come to realize how difficult it is – the more you realize how much you actually love that person.I haven’t seen or spoken to that girl I met nearly a decade ago in years. Some of you will fall in love with the right person to find that it is the right time. I just hope that you have the strength to keep going, not to give up on yourself.You are giving up on certain things, making concessions and compromises in order to give yourself to the other person.You are devoting a chunk of your life, your thoughts, your dreams and your future to them.
