How to say no…

Learn to Say No Gracefully

“No thank you”

“I’m interested in doing this next year”


“I don’t think it’s a good fit”

“Right now, I’m totally focused on getting xyz done, thank you for the opportunity”

“Gosh, I’d love to, but I promised myself I wouldn’t take on one more thing even if it was really cool”


“I’m flattered you thought of me, I can’t take advantage of that opportunity now and still deliver on what I’ve promised to do already”


“In an effort to practice what I preach and find some balance, I’m choosing to say no”

“Have you ever had to say to no to something you really wanted to do but didn’t have time to do? That’s what I’m going to have to do in this situation”

“Thanks, but no”

Protect your goals and your sanity, just say no.
