Sometimes it's good to say no...

... Many of us are guilty of saying 'yes' a lot at work; things sound great, we want to help, we can see how amazing something could be with our contribution. Our team (and many others) are incredibly guilty of saying yes at work, ending up with more work than we can ever possibly manage to complete, and then looking like we haven't put in any effort because we're trying to do too much.

Whilst Ned Potter's post 'Five Questions to ask yourself before you say yes' focuses specifically on professional development, in particular giving talks and presentations, the same advice can equally well be applied to other types of professional development and work-based scenarios. Definitely worth a read.
