We all have todo lists — commitments, tasks, obligations — things we’ve given our YES to.

And often that list is overwhelming.

In times like that, clarifying our NOs may be even more important than trying to power through our YESs.

We can’t be everywhere, and we can’t do everything, as much as we might aspire to.

But, we can strengthen and honor that which has our YES by getting clear on what we have said NO to, and not letting ourselves feel obligated or distracted by those NOs.

‘Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.’ ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
