The power of ‘’no’’ at work… when you want to say yes

I’m a self-confessed people pleaser. It’s something I’m working on. My reaction to ‘’lunch?’’ ‘’drinks?’’, an 8:00am meeting request or another project to manage, would always instinctively have been yes. I like to be busy, I like to be supportive, and I like to challenge myself. But most of all, I find it hard to say no.
