An Opportunity I'll Turn Down

This morning, after reading this article – Opportunities You Should Turn Down – I made a decision.

I’d been offered some extra work up at school, working with a student that has some learning and behaviour difficulties.

I’m already at school working with 2 boys with ‘special needs’.  I love the work I’m doing.  I come home some days completely and utterly exhausted, both mentally and physically, but I love my job.  I’m helping with their education and ensuring that they have the best possible entry from school in to the ‘real’ world.

And I would have been doing the same with this other student.

But…  I was in two minds.  So I took a long, hard look at the offer (opportunity) and said “No thank you.”

I kind of feel guilty about the decision, but I know that it is in the best interest of my own family, present work and business life.  All will not suffer the same as if I had of said “Yes”.

Are there some opportunities that you should have said “No” to?  And are you like me, and get the guilts when you do say “No”?

      Thanks Alyson. I’m feeling a lot better about the decision this morning. A night to sleep on it has eased the guilty feeling.
