The Art of Saying No

A Guide to Assertiveness and Setting Boundaries

Think saying ‘no’ is easy? Think again. It’s an art, and most of us are about as artistic as a brick. In a world that constantly demands more of us, learning to say ‘no’ is like finding a secret weapon. But it’s not just about refusing stuff; it’s about setting boundaries and standing your ground.

This episode, Eugene and Jones are getting into the nitty-gritty of assertiveness. We’re not just talking about turning things down; we’re talking about why it’s so damn hard and what we can do about it. It’s about time we stopped being everyone’s yes-men and started looking out for ourselves.

We’ll share stories, some wins, and probably a few face-plants along the way. Expect straight-shooting advice, a few laughs, and maybe even a wake-up call or two.

Here’s our take: Saying ‘no’ isn’t about being stubborn or rude; it’s about respecting yourself and your limits. And guess what? That’s not just okay; it’s essential.

So crank it up, dive in with us, and let’s get real about saying ‘no.’ It’s about time we all learned to stand our ground – one firm, unapologetic ‘no’ at a time.

The Midlife and Clueless Show

Midlife & Clueless is a weekly podcast show that talks about topics we all think about but don’t dare talk about in the open lest we be judged, or get into an online squabble with keyboard warriors. We ask that audiences who take part in the dialogue in M&C to do so with an open mind. Take what works for you, and archive what doesn’t.
