Saying Yes

Saying Yes

My last blog post focused on your power to say “no” to things. I mentioned that with the courage to say “no” comes a deeper commitment to that to which you say “yes.” I want to talk about the next layer of saying “yes” to things. We at the Handel Group™ call it “designing your life” and the main tools we use are promises and consequences. Yup, we tell people to promise to do what they say they will do and then pay a consequence for every promise they don’t keep.
