I've worked on this project for over a decade. I've always felt a certain sense of pride at being asked year and year to do the Public Relations.
But, this year was stressful...a nightmare...a drain.
I don't know what made this year so different. Maybe it's my age or lack of tolerance for the drama surrounding this project, or maybe lack of patience.
Whatever the reason: It's time to let it go. It's time to say NO. It's time to refuse to do it again.
I do this once a year and each year, I vow not to do it the next year. But, with the lapse of time, I forget.
This year, I won't forget! I've tagged a lot of people to remind me when the request comes to say...NO! When the client is treating me to a sumptuous breakfast...say....NO! When the memory of the stress of it all begins to wear down as the year goes by, remember and say...NO!
In other words, say NO!
