Just Say No: Why You Need to Get Good At Rejecting Opportunities, Offers and Others by J. Maureen Henderson

Source: http://www.forbes.com

Whether it’s a blind date, a coworker’s baby shower or an interminable networking event, we’re all guilty of saying yes to invitations we’d rather not accept. Now, science tells us the reason we’re reluctant to refuse is because we don’t want to reject others, especially if we have to do it in person. We get ourselves embroiled in some sticky professional and personal situation because we simply can’t say no with ease. Rejecting offers, opportunities and others is actually good for you, though.
