Inspired by a Fast Company article offering the perspective that being overextended is a choice, in Episode 21 of Edit Your Life, Asha and I share 9 tips to help you master the fine art of SAYING NO. Because while there are some things in life that are essential, a lot of things truly are optional. It’s your life, your choices -- we all have the power to identify the things that are important to us, and to make room for those things, in whatever ways we can.
It's super easy to listen right through this blog post (press the play button in the podcast player below) or via an app on your device (e.g., the Podcasts app for iPhone or Stitcher, Podcast Addict, or Pocket Casts for Android).
If you're not seeing the Soundcloud player, you can listen to Episode 21 directly on Soundcloud.

- Derek Sivers, former CEO of CD Baby (if it’s not a hell yes, it’s a no!)
- Edit Your Life Episode 8: Finding Your Fringe Hours (if it’s not a heck yes, it’s a no!)
