055: How to Know When to Say YES in Life – with Tiffany Han

The Simplifiers Podcast banner/post image

Okay, I’m curious… what’s your process when you’re making a big life decision? For me, it’s all about gaining clarity as quickly as possible. So, I clear my entire desk off, grab a giant piece of white paper, flip on the kettle and get to work mapping it all out visually.

Maybe you’re a spreadsheets gal? Or you like to jot down the pros and cons? Or your go-to is to speak to a trusted friend or coach for advice?

My guest, Tiffany Han simplifies when to say ‘YES’ in life… and when to say ‘Heck no’

As Tiffany says, “it’s time to stop saying yes to everyone else’s ISH and start saying yes to yourself. Life is too short for you to wait any longer.”

Here are a few simple, practical tips to help you make better decisions in your work and life.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • about the revelations Tiffany had during her recent break from social media, and how that helped refine her decision making skills and focus
  • Tiffany’s process for making decisions in work and life, plus the framework she follows to get to YES or NO, faster
  • what part ‘truth-telling and discernment’ each play in decision making
  • why it’s important to focus internally as much as externally, when facing change in life
  • how to begin to take ‘bold, inspired action towards your dreams’

I love, love, LOVE Tiffany’s core message of helping us to say YES to those things you want to do, be, and say.

To say yes to the vision you have for your life. To say yes to yourself. No more hitting pause on your life for the sake of what everyone else wants and needs.

This is powerful stuff here, so you might want to just download this one and listen to it again to catch all the tips she shares. This might be exactly what you needed to hear today, my friend… and it could change EVERYTHING.


My challenge for you this week:

Take some time to look at what you say YES to. Consider the time you spend on social media, what choices you make out of obligation, and ask yourself how you can find alignment with where you want to be.

Share it with me, privately or publicly, by snapping a photo of you doing the thing and tag @thesimplifiers on Instagram for added accountability and support!

Favorite quotes from this episode:

[03:10] “I believe that our only job is to have faith that we will be able to figure things out as we go, which to me helps me keep my focus.” – Tiffany

[13:34] “The bottom line of social media is to keep your eyeballs on there for as long as possible. So you get the dopamine hit of, what I call ‘the mindless death scroll’.” – Mary

[21:39] “The biggest turning points in our lives have come when we’ve said yes to something, and then the very next breath, ‘Oh my God, what have I done? But we figure it out, we get through it and that’s when we develop resilience.” – Tiffany

[25:01] “When opportunities come up, I say, ‘Is this in alignment with where I want to be 5 years from now?'” – Tiffany

[31:37] “When you get clear and get back to basics, simplify down, and get rid of the nonsense, making decisions can be very clear at that point.” – Mary
