I really meant to write this post on January 2, but then I got busy with AMS and soon the job thing followed. I didn’t get a chance to share with you what I believed then and still believe is my “Focus” word for 2015.
That word is NO.
One of my childhood friends stated recently that No is a complete sentence in two letters.
Saying No means that I will not overcommit and under deliver which disappoints both of us.
Saying No means that you have more time in your life for the Yeses that are important and usually come after someone hears you say No.
Saying No does not mean that I’m being selfish with my time, nor being a slacker and pulling my weight. This year it means I am being more thoughtful about the choices I make, the projects I’m willing to take on and the people I’m going to spend time with in 2015. To me, by saying No I’m going to do the best that that I can and give what I can give.
I wish I could say it was a more cheerful word like embrace, joy, smile or what what, but it is what it is.
I say yes to that.
