No way, jose!

Saying "no" is a seemingly easy task that has managed to avoid me like the black plague for most of my life. In fact, I think I might be allergic to saying "no" hives, guilt anxiety attacks sort of allergic. It's dumb, I know, but I'm a jew, and we've got the guilt thing down to a science. So, I totally dug this recent article from Online Organizing outlining 20 snazzy, successful, "you can do it too" ways to say "no"

A few of my fave "no's" include:

"Not right now, but I can do it later"

"I wold rather decline than do a mediocre job"

and my all time fave: "NO"
