Stop Saying Yes to Everything

It’s easy to end up overworking if you always say yes to every assignment or are the first to volunteer when asked. This isn’t good for your personal life, professional life, or your mental health.

If you want a happier work life, you need to have boundaries. Taking on too much work will interfere with your work-life balance, where “work” takes precedence over “life.”

And stop agreeing with everyone and everything! This doesn’t mean that you should turn down or oppose other people’s ideas without a valid reason, but speak up if you have an idea or suggestion that could be better and more viable.

You may never get a promotion or raise if you simply keep saying yes. Leaders like employees who can challenge them, and not ones who agree with everything they say.
