OVEREXTENDING YOURSELF

I am a victim of “yes” quite a bit. My guess is you are too. You WANT to help out a coworker who’s falling behind, you LOVE volunteering on the weekend, and OF COURSE you will help organize the surprise birthday. Before you know it it’s 2am you’re making posters for the marathon & saying “How the heck did I get myself here?! I’m exhausted!” I’ve started a little mantra that I say to myself every time before saying “yes” to something. Any tricks you have to keep from overextending yourself?!
