Do you struggle to say no? Fr. Michael Rossmann, SJ, author of The Freedom of Missing Out: Letting Go of Fear and Saying Yes to Life, has some advice:
The next time you’re invited to do something, ask yourself, “If I say yes to this, what am I saying no to?” A new commitment inevitably reduces the time and energy we have for our previous commitments. There is always an opportunity cost. If we say yes, we better be prepared to say no.
