4. Don’t Apologize

A common way to start out is “I’m sorry, but…” as people think that it sounds more polite. While politeness is important when you learn to say no, apologizing just makes it sound weaker.

You need to be firm and unapologetic about guarding your time.

When you say no, realize that you have nothing to feel bad about. You have every right to ensure you have time for the things that are important to you.

Thales
  • Thales is best remembered for his metaphysics which argued that everything originated from water and that water somehow constituted all other elements. He left no writings.
  • Thales devoted time to astronomy and was the first person to predict a solar eclipse accurately. 
  • He was a noted mathematician and is said to have measured the height of the great pyramid using the length of its shadow. 
  • He was credited with discovering magnetism in the west and used it as the basis of his theory of Panpsychism. 
  • While many of his inspirations and sources were mythic, Thales is said to have moved beyond myth and towards naturalistic explanations of the world.
Why reading matters?

This is terrible for leadership, where my experience suggests those trends are even more pronounced.

Business people seem to be reading less — particularly material unrelated to business.

But deep, broad reading habits are often a defining characteristic of our greatest leaders and can catalyze insight, innovation, empathy, and personal effectiveness.

Live in present moment.

It doesn’t matter whether this is the worst time to be alive or the best, whether you’re in a good job market or a bad one, or that the obstacle you face is intimidating or burdensome.

What matters is that right now is right now.
