Who's keen for the #fridaynightgrind? Respect to you all putting your head down when everyone else is wasting their on booze. .
"" in the comments if your hustling, working, editing, shooting, creating, pouring schooners, serving customers, delivering pizzas or doing whatever the hell it is you do, tonight!
I get asked to do things everyday. Things that I wouldn't necessarily hate to do. For example: .
Joining a new social sports team.
Catching up for drinks with a friend or colleague.
Taking on an extra shoot over the weekend.
And for so long in my life I would say yes to everything someone asked me to do.
However lately I've been learning to say no. I have to ask myself, "what does this cost?". "Do these things help me achieve my short and long term goals?".
Most of the time, the answer is no. They tend to cost time away from my family (which is my #1 goal), and time away from the behind the camera/editing/prepping etc (my #2 goal).
I'm not saying I don't go out, socialise or live my life. I just do it on my time. Not everyone else's.
I've managed to move through the judgement that comes with saying no surprisingly easily. I've reverse engineered what I want in this life. And it's been incredibly liberating.
Do you struggle to say no to things? Or is it just me hmu.
