Yes Man

In this interview with William Ury, he said: "No may be the word we need most in today's times. The world has sped up and we get overwhelmed with today's demands, whether it is demands at work or balancing our work and family lives. In fact, No may be the most powerful word in the language, the most needed word in these times of endless e-mail and overwhelm." So what would happen if we'd say YES to any demand or invitation we get? Yesterday my wife, kids and I enjoyed the comedie Yes Man with Jim Carrey who plays Carl Allen, 'a guy whose life is going nowhere—the operative word being no—until he signs up for a self-help program based on one simple covenant: say yes to everythingand anything. Unleashing the power of YES begins to transform Carls life in amazing and unexpected ways, getting him promoted at work and opening the door to a new romance. But his willingness to embrace every opportunity might just become too much of a good thing.'
