The Power of No

We're talking about Slow to Flow, productivity, and saying no.

Da da da hump 🫰🏾🫰🏾!We've reached the week's plateau. It should be smooth sailing from here right? LOL, we know that's not always the case. But we can hope!

It's about this time that our distractions kick in like a goldfish on Red Bull. It hits us all in one way or another, whether we care to admit it or not.

Our approach to productivity—Slow to Flow—helps us to push forward in these times. For instance, as we near the hump, we know we need more time for ourselves. That becomes a priority we schedule, and make happen. There's no compromise.

Then there's the power of no. James Clear does an amazing job of explaining this. Our take on it is simple. The power of no helps us remain focused on what matters. What matters is what's important.

We'll talk a lot more about urgent vs. important later. For now, here's another way to look at it. It's like breakfast: The urgent is the bacon, sizzling on the griddle. It smells irresistible, tempting us to dive in without hesitation. The important—like eggs, they take longer to prepare and are the foundation of the meal.

Woah, that was a pretty long winded way to say Wednesdays suck. 🤷🏻‍♀️
