Life in the Yes Lane
Hmm… let me think about it. Maybe another time. I don’t know if it’s a good idea…
Really? How many excuses are you going to come up with already? When someone presents you with a last minute invitation, a strange offer or some other spontaneous idea, say yes and live a little. Provided you don’t have an appointment to get your teeth whitened or some other pressing engagement, that is. Sure, you just learned to say no and all, but there are times when accepting an invite can be good for you.
Don’t think, do! As Hamlet said brilliantly: "Conscience makes cowards of us all." When you think about things too much, doubt and fear start to creep in and before you know it, you’ve missed out on a great opportunity. Don’t let analysis paralysis rule your life. The next time someone makes you an offer, open your mind and go for it.
Those seven hours at the local poodle club’s annual specialty show and obedience trials might be more enjoyable than you think.
