In this week's episode, I'm talking about a single, magic word that has the power to reduce your stress and give you more time to do the things that matter to you.

What is this "Magic Word" ?


People seem to have no issue asking for our time, our attention, our money, etc. But for some reason, we often feel bad about saying no. It makes us feel like we're not doing our part, or being negative, or a bad person. "No" is just a response. It's neither good nor bad, but learning to use it can have a huge impact on your life.

Key Insights

  • ​Saying "no" doesn't mean you're a negative person with a negative attitude...it's just a response
  • ​No need to make up excuses. This is a complete sentence: "No."
  • ​Using the word "because" in your response can lead to less pushback
  • ​Saying No to things you don't want to do gives you more time to say yes to the things you do want to do
