Ok, let’s have a look at the 4th technique of saying NO.


HACK 4:Will Get Back


This technique buys you some time to re-assess your to-do list and prioritize it basis on the changed circumstances.


Instead of saying an upfront no, it allows you to arrive at a rational decision by carefully considering the alternatives available.


It also sends a signal to the other person that his request could not be accommodated even after careful consideration, so there must be a genuine reason behind it.


If you are a soft & kind person or somewhat image conscious then this technique is tailormade for you.


You get an opportunity to buy some time before responding.


This hack can be equally effective in professional as well as personal settings.


As always I would be looking forward to your feedback in the comments.


See you in part 5 of the series, join me there.
