Just say no:
1 When one more task will push you over the edge of the cliff. You do realize there are only 24 hours in a day no matter how you slice it?
2 When you know you can’t deliver on the promise you just made. You aren’t a magician.
3 When the person asking is trying to make you feel bad so that you will say yes. Don’t fall for it! It’s trickery.
4 You can do it! Stand in front of a mirror and practice. Once you get started, you won’t remember how to say yes.
5 No one says you have to give an answer immediately. Sleep on it and pray that the person finds some other sucker to do it by morning.
6 When the person is always asking for favors and using you to get what they want. Say no pinocchio. You aren’t anyone’s puppet.
7 That little voice in your head is telling you it’s a bad idea. If you don’t listen, you will only find out later that the little voice was right.
8 If the favor you are doing is going to stress you out then it is not worth the hassle.
9 When someone asks you for money all the time. You aren’t a bank! If you keep giving away money, who will pay your bills?
10 If your special favor involves missing one of your kid’s events. They will remember and hold it against you for as long as they can get away with it. It will cost you way more than saying no would have.
