There’s something to think about before you make any commitment, but especially a time commitment. You can’t get more time. That’s why it’s so important to ask yourself this question before you agree to spend your time doing anything.

If I say “yes” to this, to what am I saying “no”?

Because that’s exactly what you’re doing. You’re trading time spent on this activity, whatever it may be, for time spent doing something else.

So is the thing you’re saying “yes” to more important to you than that other activity?

Will it move you closer to your dream life than the other thing?

Will it provide the balance you desire in your life better than the other commitment?

Once you realize that saying “yes” to this new activity means saying “no” to something else, it makes it much easier to just say “no”.
