What we say yes to


Prioritization and effective time management are generally framed around what we say no to. We need to say no to hundreds of projects to be able to do justice to what’s important. While that is true, saying no is hard for most folks. And, it certainly feels tiring to do so repeatedly. An alternative framing I’ve found helpful is around what we say yes to. Whenever we say yes to something that isn’t important, we are effectively saying no to something that is. A request for a 30 minute coffee tomorrow that isn’t high priority seems harmless. However, losing 30 minutes would mean staying later at work and spending less time with the family that evening. This framing ensures we put every yes in context and remind ourselves more regularly about what matters. And, the more we remind ourselves of and say yes to what actually matters, the more effective our days become. Share this: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Like this: Like Loading...

John Perry Barlow


John Perry Barlow understood what the Internet was, what it could be, and what it must be before most of us did. He passed away yesterday and the Internet filled with remembrances. Here are some of the best that I read: Cory Doctorow on BoingBoing Steven Levy on Wired Cindy Cohn at EFF Rest In Peace JPB http://avc.com/2018/02/john-perry-barlow/
