Some of you in the nonprofit technology field may remember this wonderful cartoon "Time Management for Techies" created by Miriam Engelberg who we lost breast cancer about two years ago. I thought of that cartoon today as I read Chris Brogan's brilliant post "Scaling Yourself" which seems to be resonating with bloggers and micro-bloggers including me.
Chris reflects and shares some tips. Go read it. I love the say no with kindness. He references the How To Say No podcast that gives you a method for saying no. (The quick and dirty: to listen deeply, acknowledge their position, and say "No" kindly.) Listen to the podcast, it's short, it's brilliant and informative.
