When you took stock of 2017 and set out a plan for this new year, did you make a vow to just say no? No to additional commitments, no to volunteering, no to one more extra responsibility? If you did, I want to encourage you to say yes instead. This time, when you say yes, do it with the conviction that you can be in control of how those things are done. Then you can make the most of every new thing you take on. Are you competitive?
