Avoid saying “yes” to everything. Saying “yes” all the time means you’re not being selective with your time; you’re spreading yourself too thin. Instead, adopt the “hell yeah, or no” approach. Say “no” to everything except the things that truly get you excited.
If you really, truly need to get something done, say “no” to everything except the one key focus.
