The other day, one of my readers, Bruce Layman shared a provoking question that makes the decision-making process easier.
Simply ask yourself “Is this (book, movie, TV show, podcast, band, etc.) for me?”
If not, it’s okay. Let other people enjoy it and continue consuming the things that surprise and delight you.
I like how using this approach allows you to say “no” in such a powerful and neutral way. Here’s how Bruce explains it:
It keeps you from being a karma suck about things that people like. I didn’t watch a single episode of Game of Thrones (gasp, I know!) and when people would ask me, “Why don’t you watch the show, it’s the BEST SHOW EVAAAARRRRR!” I could respond that it simply wasn’t for me. I didn’t have to say anything negative about it, not even that I didn’t like it, only that it isn’t for me.
