Learning to Say No

I think this lesson can be applied to everybody's life. It was part of my Bible Study I taught this weekend, but I think one of the main concepts could be used by everybody and I think it makes decision making a little bit easier. First, know your priorities. And my sister made a good point that it is best to have three or four priorities. If you find you have like 20, then you need to work on narrowing that down first, before yoou even worry about this step. Then, base your decision on those priorities, if it is something that will bring you closer to fulfilling your priorities, then say "Yes" but if you find it goes against those priorities, then be strong and just say "No".

Today was my first day at work. It went well. I did not have much to do, because I not been trained on the main tasks, but I handled the phone and worked on my Happies. I got 50 nearly completed. WooHoo! Now, I need to figure out what to use to punch holes in the corners. They won't fit in a standard paper punch and I don't want to spend $15 on a jumbo paper punch at Wal Mart. Maybe my leather phunch will work... or maybe I need to pull out my drill... that could be a disaster in the making.

Great advice on priorities! :) sometimes I feel like I have way too many things to do-- I like the idea of focusing on the most important :)
