  (1)

  Listen carefully, working people, we would like to tell you something that could save your precious time and money! Best of all, it is free!

  Its no.

  What do you ask? Well say it again: No.

  Sweet and simple no.

  Say no at your office and see how quickly that pile of work on your desk disappears.

  Saying no to others means you are saying yes to yourself, said Leslie Charles, a professional speaker from East Lansing, Michigan.

  Time is precious. People are spending money buying time. And yet we are willing to give up our time because we cant say no.

  Susie Watson, a famous writer, said people who always say yes need to say no without guilt(内疚)or fear of punishment. I would rather have someone give me a loving no than an obligated(强制的) yes, she said.

  Susie Watson says she feels no obligation to give an explanation when she says no either socially or professionally. Does she feel guilty about it? Not at all, said Watson, who is director of advertising and public relations at Timex Corp in Middlebury, Conneticut. Most people are afraid of saying no My advice is to say yes only if you dont mean no.

  Watson said no is the most effective weapon against wasting time. Every year there are more demands on your time Other people are happy to use up your time, Watson said. Time saving appears to be nos greatest friend.

  No can be your new friend, a powerful tool to take back your life. No may even take you further in the business world than yes.

  No is power and strength. No now seems completely correct. Saying no isnt easy. But finally its greatly liberating, Charles said. But, he added, a no project needs to be worked on every day because it is hard to change long-term habit.

  But, he also warns: Dont go to extremes. Dont find yourself saying no to everything. In return you should learn to hear no.

  A. you can have more time to play with others
