Today’s Nano is a perfect continuation of last week’s one. I ended the previous Nano by stating, “What are you going to focus on this financial year and more importantly, what are you going to say “NO” to?”

Thus, learning to “Say NO” becomes a very powerful skill. But what do you say NO to? 

Don’t Stress. I am sharing a very insightful visual and framework for saying NO by artists “Liz and Mollie”.

Take a few minutes to understand this. Now go through it again. Take a print and keep it on your desk (for reference as and when required).

This framework will be super useful to you as you learn, practice and master the art of saying ‘NO’. 

Remember this Steve Job’s quote, “Focusing is about saying No.”
