Jeremy Cherfas on turning down work:

I learned long ago that doubling the price on a job, only to have the client accept anyway, actually doubles the misery of a job I don’t want to do in the first place. I need to Just Say No.

I wholeheartedly agree. I’ve become much better at saying no in recent years.

I always say that if you are good at what you do, you'll need to learn to say no to interesting things, because you can't do them all.
