The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say “no” to almost everything.

  1. YES! Most of the time I need to say no to my own ideas so I can focus, finish and ship. We all have plenty of good ideas but almost no one takes a few, thinks big about them and then ships. This is a work in progress for me. As I improve I accomplish more.

  2. Good point Roger, I was thinking more about saying people and opportunities that are good but not right. Now I have to add to the list saying no to myself!

  3. True! A NO can prevent someone having Focus diversified . But i also believe an proper YES for a something might open new opportunities.So it is purely a take based on the circumstances.

  4. No silly loyalty cards. No newsletters. No free ebooks. No podcasts. No blogging and social media conferences. No popups. No launch teams. No invasive marketing strategies. No. No. No! There. That feels better. And I’m already extremely successful because I’m living a balanced life and playing by my own rules. :)
