#512 9. Just say no. Say no at least as often as you say yes.
 Just say no. You’re polite. You’re courteous. You’re helpful. You want to be a team player. You’re overwhelmed. Say no at least as often as you say yes. You can still be polite while protecting your time. And you should protect your time–it’s the one asset no one can afford to waste.
QUESTIONS for thinking it through:
How could this clarify my Reality?
How could this benefit if added to my Disciplines?
Who needs to hear this?
