Are You Too Quick in Saying “Yes”?
I wouldn’t be surprised if you were. I know I am sometimes!
Being quick to say “yes” might mean that you attend meetings and events, and take on tasks, projects and other activities that you aren’t at all interested in.
So what can you do in the future?
Next time someone asks you to do something or to take part in something you’re not fully sure whether you want to, it’s best to create a pause and ask for time to think about it. You can say something like, “Let me get back to you”.
That should stop you making hasty decisions that you later might regret.
Or is this a tactic you’ve already been using?
