10 Ways to say NO!!!

Is “Overcommitment” your middle name? Do you hate to turn anyone down? Do you say yes before thinking? If overcommitment is making you run behind schedule, here are ten ways to say,”Thanks, but not thanks”:

  1. “I’d love to, but this isn’t a good time for me to make that kind of commitment.”
  2. “My plate’s pretty full at the moment; I’m going to have to say no.”
  3. “Not this time.”
  4. “I’m going to have to pass.”
  5. “I can’t be involved at this time. But let me make a recommendation of someone else who might be willing to help. Have you considered asking ______________?”
  6.  “I wish I could say yes, but my schedule at the moment is filled to the brim.”
  7. “It would be a mistake for me to take on that project right now because I don’t have the time available to do the best job.”
  8. “Thanks, but no thanks.”
  9. ” I cannot, in good conscience, make another commitment right now.”
  10. “NO”
