The twenty-four-hour rule
It is never easy to say no at the beginning, so let’s try the twenty-four-hour rule. This means when someone asks for help, you tell them that you will get back to them in twenty four hours. Or if the request comes from email, you just let it there and think carefully before relying. And if someone asks for emergency help, you still need to spend at least 5-10 minutes before relying. Because saying yes to others sometimes means saying no to yourself.
Maintain your boundary
Everyone has a different boundary and you need to let people know your boundary. For instance, when your boss asks you to stay overnight and do the project or when your friend asks you to help him with his work, you need to say no to them politely. And keep saying no like that will build your boundary and people will less ask you for help all the time.
Ask for help
Even the superman can’t do all the things so why don’t you ask for help when you need it? If you have any problem, you can always share with your friends and ask them for help. However, you should remember to try your best before asking someone to help since everyone is busy.
