just say “not now”

In no is in the air Esther Derby provides loads of good advice and links for those who just can’t say no.

I particularly liked the idea that a “no” is a fail-fast mechanism. It lets both parties know where they stand, and allows them to immediately move on to something more productive. Which aligns nicely with my current push for jidoka in all things.
