No/Yes Exchange Rate

Q: What’s the exchange rate for “No” to “Yes”?
A: 1:100,000 

If someone invites you to the movies and you say, “No,”. You’ve said “No,” to one thing. 

But if you say, “Yes,” you are consequently saying “No,” to 100,000 other opportunities. 

Since you’re at the movies with your friend you can’t (at that same time):
– Play chess in the park
– Go roller skating
– Visit a museum
– Call your mom
– Write a memoir
– Walk through a library
– And so on…

No is a decision.
Yes is a responsibility 

Actionable Question: Am I being responsible with my “Yes”?

Have a great day,
