Say “No” to the wrong ideas


  1. When an idea comes to you, and you don't feel like working on it right now for some reason, acknowledge it first.
    Take time to reflect and ask yourself why you don’t like to work on that idea. Perhaps it’s a big project, and you don’t have much time. It can also be an idea that you’re not passionate about. Be honest with your reason.

  2. Send that idea away by saying, “I am honored by your visitation. But I can’t work with you right now. This is because (state your reason). With this, I suggest you will find another person to cooperate with you. Thank you for understanding.” Whatever your reason is, be sympathetic to that idea. After all, it just wants to be realized.

  3. Move on and wait for the next idea to arrive.
    If the next idea excites you, that’s the time you can finally say yes to it.
