Just Say No: Spring Fever Edition
March 15, 2012 § Leave a comment
The weather has been too nice this week to be chained to a never ending to do list! I kept running across articles on the web this week on the theme of saying no to free yourself to say yes to things that are rewarding.
It started with a Facebook link via Craig Jarrow, the Time Management Ninja, to online writer and productivityist, Mike Vardy’s “How I Say No” with some great how-to on evaluating opportunities to determine which ones to accept and reject.
Later Get Rich Slowly posted information on how to identify whether something is a Time Sink or Passion. Again, some great process tips to help you separate the two!
These posts were timely as this week at PEC we’ve been revisiting our processes to ensure that we are putting our resources (and time and energy) where they can best be utilized to meet our mission.
The change of seasons is a great time to slow down and evaluate how you’re using your time. Frankly, it’s one of your most valuable resources. Where do you want to “spend” it?
Part of our process discussions has been the realization that many hands make light work. If you are interested in volunteering with PEC , please visit http://www.empowerctr.org/volunteer.html to see our current list of opportunities.
