    Quit Saying Yes to Everything

    Learn the art to say NO. You don’t have to do anything and everything which your superiors (at work) or people in the social circle ask. Define the limits of your comfort zone and except in case of extreme emergencies, never stretch them for anybody. Here it is important to define the comfort zone in a realistic and rational manner; it should cater to what is expected out of you.
