Creative People Say No

No is something I need to get a lot better at.

Kevin Ashton :

Saying no” has more creative power than ideas, insights and talent combined. No guards time, the thread from which we weave our creations. The math of time is simple: you have less than you think and need more than you know. We are not taught to say no.” We are taught not to say no.” No” is rude. No” is a rebuff, a rebuttal, a minor act of verbal violence. No” is for drugs and strangers with candy.
