I had a meeting with a great mentor and influencer in my life this past week. He dropped a wisdom bomb on me and I thought I’d pass it along. Here’s what I learned:
The right vision will allow you to say No. A vision that is too broad allows far too many Yes’ to be effective. By saying No, you are giving your vision more clarity, focus and eventually you’ll see greater results.
This does not mean that you can not have a huge vision. This just means you need a focused vision.
What can you say no to? What ideas are automatically cast aside because they don’t fit into your vision? What opportunities do you turn down because they don’t align with your vision.
If you can’t say No, it might be time to take another look at your vision.
