Being kind and saying yes to everything will eventually get you into big trouble. I’m not referring to saying yes to illegal things(that will get you into trouble too) in this instance. I’m referring to balancing your work life. People will eventually try and take advantage of you if you have a certain skill set that they need/want.
That is when you need to stand up and say NO. You have a business to run and people to pay, doing favors will eventually catch up to you and time will run out. You need to learn to stand up to people and say NO when time comes.
Being a push over and saying YES will not get you anywhere. Look if you decide that you want to help the person or people that’s totally up to you. Just make sure that you have the resources available to help them.
Have you ever had to say NO to people close to you? OR Have you always been strong willed?
