Article: 7 Words and Phrases That Make People Think Less of You Professionally

Words are not only a communication tool, but also explain how skillful you are.

The author suggests to replace a few words in order to show that you are in control of your business. For example, avoid saying “I can’t”, “I don’t have time” or “it is not my job” or “I do not know”. Give a specific date instead of saying “soon”.

Whether you agree with the author or not, I believe one should always walk the extra miles for the customer and should always care about acquiring new skills that strength the business.

Article: The life-changing magic of knowing whether people are ‘Askers’ or ‘Guessers’

If you are suffering from the overload work and responsibilities, then you need to take care of yourself and set some boundaries and start to say No.

This is basically the advice you are given if you complain about your mental, emotional and even physical health, while you are running around to please everyone around you and neglecting yourself.

Take care of yourself… But how? Especially if you are a woman with a family and business to take care of.

So setting up boundaries and saying No, is the most repeated advice for taking care of yourself. From my point of view, I found it hard to say No. But it never came to my mind what this attached article highlights. It stresses the difference between askers and Guessers. It basically advices that we should distinguish between the asker (who is asking but does not expect a yes answer), and a Guesser (who expects a YES answer).

Does this makes it easier to say NO? Well it does help me out though.
