If you want to be in charge of your time, you definitely need to learn how to say ‘no’. One of the techniques I use is to say ‘no’, but at the same time offer some kind of (partial) solution, e.g. “I can’t help you this time, but you can find more info here,” or “I know Susan was working on something similar, maybe she can help?” I fidn it takes the edge off the rejection! Time is limited and precious, so you should never feel guilty about saying ‘no’ when you need to. Thank you for posting!
