What Happens When You Say Yes
There is a basic rule in improv comedy: just say yes.
Picture it—two comedians are working an improv. The moment one interrupts the flow—because he doesn’t say yes—the sketch is over. The story shuts down, along with any laughs from the audience.
You have to say yes to partner.
You have to say yes to make forward progress.
You have to say yes to see just how far you can take your idea—and build your authority.
No is a deal-killer. It stops innovation and creativity dead. Your big idea fizzles. You fail to pursue an unconventional new alliance that just might be your break-through. You avoid the new technology that could take your business to a whole new level.
Yes isn’t always the right answer of course—where’s the integrity in that? But if you don’t start with a yes in your heart, you’ll never find out how far you could go.
