To loosely quote Elizabeth Gilbert…
“It’s not just saying no to things you don’t want so that you can have the stuff you do. It’s saying no to the things you do want, but just don’t want as much.”
This is the hard bit. Sure, perhaps you can do all those projects. But would they all be the quality you want? Would doing it all give you the life you want?
Be clear about what you want from your work. Be honest if what you’re doing right now helps you get there.
Saying no—or no for now—is more than OK.
