January 2, 2011

I am never surprised by the number of people I encounter on a daily basis who have something they want me to do or a proposal for me to look at. Over the year I guess I have just become accustomed to taking on work and always being willing to help out and I also slowing am starting to realize that when I take on these jobs I am also taking on the job of delegating more work to other people. Today I did not come across a major task of delegation, but instead two large mountains that come when you take on a task. Number one is simply the idea of taking on too much at one time. Oprah’s new network made me realize that we have been living in a cluttered house and I finally took a stance. You see we have been gathering boxes and containers with “crap”. However I did not realize that it was going to be taken on one step at a time. This is the point when I think I have to set a New Year’s Resolution for my family to clean the house and make it look normal. To make it easier I hope that they take it on an hour each night, but slowly the task will be finished. When I took on this mountain I found my Everest. It is the word “NO”. It is a word used too often, but I am not hear to preach about not saying no, but to bring up the idea of creating a good argument to go along with it. We can’t simply refuse to do something, but sometimes facts can make it fair to not do something. Am I saying that it’s okay to argue now? No, I believe that it is important to take a stance in your beliefs and your knowledge and fighting never fixes a complication, but usually furthers it. There you have it. I answered no, but I provided reasoning for it. By someone saying no I am building a stronger arguing voice and the ability to take on big challenges in a more efficient way.
