“I realized…that I had to start saying a very, very difficult word to people, which was ‘no’.

The odd lesson for that is I figured out that’s how you end up making the favorable work you do…Saying yes, then you just work. But saying no means you made the choice of the type of story you wanted to tell and the type of character you want to play.”

‘Every time you say yes to something you don’t really want, you’re actually saying no to the things you do.’

No, these are not my words today, but certainly worth sharing for the benefit of most of us in whatever we do.
