If You Don't Prioritize Your Life, Someone Else Will - Greg McKeown by Greg McKeown | 8:00 AM June 28, 2012 “A ‘no’ uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a ‘yes’ merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.” So said Mahatma Gandhi, and we all know how his conviction played out on the world stage.
