Do you find yourself overcommitting to obligations and not having enough time for more important tasks or family time? You’re not alone.

Here are 5 steps to help you set boundaries and say “No.”

1️⃣ Check Your Feelings
How do you feel now? A year from now? Will you have any regrets? Imagine your future self for greater insight into your decision.

2️⃣ Evaluate Your Experiences
What have you done in the past that you like or don’t like doing? Take note so you can align yourself with what you really want to do.

3️⃣ Estimate Your Future Commitments
Will you be able to manage your obligations? What will you be giving up? Understand the level of commitment in your decisions to make the most of your time and resources.

4️⃣ Assess Your Decisions Holistically
What will you gain from this experience? Is there a better use of your time? Don’t forget to look at the whole picture and assess the returns from the process as well!

5️⃣ Stay on Task by Showing Your Work
Be on the same page and avoid misunderstandings with your team with a thoughtful explanation of your decision-making process.
