Are you constantly having to cancel plans because you overbooked your calendar? Do you show up late to meetings, luncheons or school functions? Are you always making excuses and repeatedly saying how busy you are?
Poor time management is an indication that you are overwhelmed and you do not have the ability to just say no.
You want to please everyone but you end up pleasing no one.
Saying yes to everything and everyone only works temporarily. Eventually you feel worn out and it takes a toll on business and personal relationships.
The solution to this problem is easy but difficult…learn to say NO. It will take practice and willpower.
People pleasers don’t develop this new way of thinking overnight.
People pleasing is a habit that was formed along time ago and in order to change it you have to think to yourself what is your life like right now by saying yes to everyone and everything?
Hectic? Unorganized? Unfulfilled? Dread? Overwhelmed? Drained?
By learning to say no you will start to live YOUR life not the life that others want you to live.
Practice this for just one week.
Set Boundaries with people who are toxic or remove them altogether.
Only schedule your calendar with what is important to you.
Make time for yourself.
Enlist the help of others.
Set realistic time for appointments and meetings.
Schedule time with the people that matter the most in your life, don’t make them fight for a spot.
This will be life changing not just for you but the people around you.
