You're saying yes to a lot of people when what you really want to do is say no and pursue your own projects. So go ahead, tell them no, and do something for yourself for a change.
Today's procrastination is tomorrow's regret. Stop putting your dreams and goals on hold. Make time for them and bring them to life, one small step at a time. Even a single step today is a step further than yesterday.
If you don't feel like talking, ask questions. People love to talk about themselves.
