No response required

There are some that find it challenging to say no. To please people, they will go with the first suggestion you make.

While never quite saying yes, either.

I attempt to make the first suggestion a "no" by default:

  • "No response required"
  • "No is a good answer"
  • "Please ignore this if you want"

It follows their instinct to go with the first suggestion. It is the healthier default choice.
