Saying “No” With Grace

“As long as you are tactful, I have found that 95% people are extremely receptive to a clear “no.” Especially if you tell them why.”

  1. Love it. But, on the flip side, some of the best advice I’ve ever received is from one of my uncles who always says, ” ‘No’ is a complete sentence. ”

    The mental and emotional energy I put into coming up with tactful explanations is just too much energy.

    Some people will get explanations, but most of the time it’s just “Unfortunately I won’t be able to do ___________”.
