I have settled into a tradition of making a November advent calendar, of sorts. I call it NO-vember. For each of the month’s 30 days, I take to LinkedIn with a video about something you can say “no” to if you want to be happier, healthier, and more productive. Here’s the round-up with links to the videos and a short blurb to give you the highlights of each idea if you prefer to read.

Let me know if you like video content like this and tell me what else I could provide that would be valuable for you?
