in the form of being able to say no when I really don’t want to do something. For instance. 2 weeks ago I was asked to join a Community Board of Directors mainly geared toward business. It was for the IT Chair. I sat through the first meeting and said I would ‘tentatively’ consider it. By the end of the meeting I basically said I would, knowing that I really didn’t want to do it.
Today, however, I managed to call to say that I really didn’t want to participate (only hours before being elected). This is really the first time I have ever done that. Usually I would have gone through the motions, bitching along the way, and would have quit leaving a mess, embarrased, and not making a good impression. For those of you who know – Guilt, Guilt, Guilt
Happy New Year
