Not No, HELL No

My new resolution is, when I am not interested in doing something for or with someone, to tell the person “no” up front and as soon as possible instead of waffling and “going with the flow” in order to avoid ruffling feathers or hurt feelings.  I recently had a simple business deal go very wrong because I never should’ve engaged in the first place.  Should’ve said, “No, thanks” from the outset.

  1. Absolutely! Anyone who might hold a grudge because you won’t “help” or “do business” with them isn’t going to like you any more when things “go very wrong”. Better to be straightforward with them upfront and offer what you can do for them.
