The Power of Saying No {& Yes!} {balance series 5 of 8} | Isogo TV Episode 50

StrengthsFinder Balance series 5 of 8 Saying No Feature

We are just barely on the other side of a big move—from the sky scrapers of NYC to the suburban sprawl of Maryland. As we treasured our last moments in the City and tried to squeeze it all in, there were inevitably things we had to say NO to…even really good things!

As we took up the courage to say NO, we realized we were free to say YES to other even more freeing and energizing things.

For example…when I said NO to shooting more episodes in our coming Isogo TV Miniseries, it was a hard pill to swallow {Achievers don’t really like readjusting the to-do list as a general rule!}. But it gave me space to be able say YES to getting ahead in other areas of work AND the freedom to really, truly enjoy some final NYC-only experiences.

Today, in the fifth Episode of our 8-part Isogo TV Miniseries on Balance, we get to chat about the scary and liberating power to say NO…and what that does to free space for the bigger “yeses” in our lives.

In Episode 50 of the Isogo TV | Live and Work Your Strengths Video Podcast, you can expect to:

  • Hear from the experts on the power of saying NO and it’s role in attaining our ideal rhythms in life
  • See one of my favorite word pictures of the busy-ness of life in action–from jar to rocks to corks!
  • Define for yourself the biggest “yes” in your life so you have the courage to really find the freedom to say no

{Throughout this Balance Miniseries, we have been referencing the FREE Balance Checklist that helps you keep track of your own progress on finding a more meaningful rhythm in your family and work, so be sure to get yours at}
