"How and When to Say No" [Creator's Block Ep. 96]
The holiday season is in full swing; full of cheerful music, delicious food, shopping adventures and of course -- chaotic schedules.
Over the past several years, I've deemed the few weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas as the "Christmas Chaos."
I love this season but also struggle to keep a level head as my days seem to get more and more busy leading up to the holiday.
As much as I'm looking forward to taking two weeks off and enjoying several days in Cancun, I can't help but be a bit overwhelmed trying to wrap up all of our clients' quarter plans and prep and roadmap out next quarter's strategies.
I know I can burn out when I push myself like this but I also feel incredibly guilty when I say no to people.
Marcella and I used today's episode as a little bit of a therapy session to help coach me on how to say no without feeling so guilty and why it's so important I follow through in doing so.
Note - To help combat the Christmas Chaos, Creator's Block will be moving to bi-weekly publications for a little while.
