Do you ever find yourself saying yes when actually, secretly, you want to say no? Why is it so hard to say no? In this episode we talk why it’s hard, and what can make it (slightly) easier.

If you want to read more about this, I’ve written a blog post here.

Mentioned in this episode:

Farmer steals Russian tank

Things I should probably say No to, but they’re fun to watch:

Like many others the other week during Storm Eunice, I found myself glued to Big Jet TV

    Only last week I said I’m 68 and I don’t want to do this’ but why did I feel so guilty afterwards that I went back and said ‘of course I will help when you need it, and I will still proofread’.

      It’s a tough one, no denying it. It takes courage to say No – but usually, people are very understanding and reality usually isn’t as bad as our imaginations.
