Chokepoints, pt 3

I enjoy reading Michael Hyatt’s blog. Recently, he posted on the subject of saying “No” and I thought it fit very well with what I have been writing about chokepoints.

Particularly, check this out:

Every time I say “no” to something that is not important, I am saying “yes” to something that is.

I might rephrase that in my own context and say:

Every time I say “no”, I am giving an opportunity to someone who is better gifted to say “yes”.

Sure, the person I say “no” to is not going to be happy about it, but that’s the reality of life. If you try to please everyone, you will ease no one – including God.
