I believe that keeping commitments is something that separates winners from losers in business. I've seen the pattern time and time again of talented people failing because they simply can't do what they fricking say they're going to do!
We can't manage time, it just passes. We can manage actions however. That's why I propose your default answer should be "no" not "yes".
Say no more and give yourself the space to...
- Meditate on what’s really important*
- Do the important work properly
- Keep your commitments to others
* I literally mean meditate. Eyes shut, quiet place the lot. It only takes a few minutes but without it I'm not sure you can trust yourself to separate what's really important, from all the other rubbish that feels important that could otherwise fill your time!
