When you're feeling overwhelmed with work as it is and your boss comes to you with just one more 'opportunity', do you struggle to say "no"?

The danger in these scenarios, of course, is that not only do you risk burning out personally but without sufficient bandwidth to dedicate to all of your projects, some of the balls you're juggling may start to drop.

In this video, I share a simple script you can use the next time your boss asks for your help on "just one more thing" and you don't feel you have the bandwidth to do it justice.
