Seth Godin explains What No Means 

I see it asked so many times in forums, on facebook and in conversations.  How do you say No to someone?

Learning how to say No is hard enough, trying to explain why you said no is even harder.

You can get caught up in explanations or excuses or reasons and you can 

Read as Seth sums up what No means and even better, provides an explanation that you can offer to everyone you say No to.

What "no" means

" I'm too busy, I don't trust you, This isn't on my list, My boss won't let me I'm afraid of moving this forward I'm not the person you think I am I don't have the resources you think I do I'm not the kind of person that does things like this I don't want to open the door to a long-term engagement Thinking about this will cause me to think about other things I just don't want to deal with 

What it doesn't mean: I see the world the way you do, I've carefully considered every element of this proposal and understand it as well as you do and I hate it and I hate you.        "

Have you ever tried to say No?  Would having this reason from Seth have helped you?  Let me know with a comment below or share and let everyone know.
