If It’s Not a Hell Yes, It’s a Hell No

Sarah Putt, MA, OTR/L

Do you struggle with taking on too much or feel like you’re stretched too thin these days?

If yes, I feel you one this. 

For years, I felt like I had too much on my plate and just kept saying yes to everything that came my way. 

Maybe it was because I was honored to be getting all these opportunities or maybe it was because I was a new entrepreneur and just trying to get my business off the ground. 

But after a while, I realized that by saying yes to so many things, many of which I didn’t really care about doing, I was limiting my time for all the things I really wanted to do. 

And I don’t remember where I heard this phrase first, prolly on a podcast one day, but it has resonated with me ever since. 

“If it’s not a hell yes, it’s a hell no.”- source unknown. 

We all have limited time in a day and time is our most precious commodity.  Anything you choose to spend time on, means you are choosing not to spend time on many other things. 

And especially if you are choosing to spend time on things that don’t light you up, that means you are making less time for the things that are important to you. 

So if you’re like me and feel like you don’t have enough time, especially for the important things in lyfe, ask yourself if what you’re doing is a hell yes. And if it’s not, then don’t do it. 

Who can relate? How do you prioritize your time to make sure you are doing the things that are meaningful to you?
