In The Time for Yes, Greg Cootsona looks at the critical question: When do we say yes? He offers key insights in the triangle of personal life, work, and friendships and gives clear, practical suggestions for the times to say yes and how to live the right rhythm of yeses and s. The Time for Yes unfolds in the three-part progression of yes: first, to discover the life just beyond our s, we listen for a deeper Voice, calling us. This involves becoming quiet and seeking to hear the God who calls. Testing represents the second step. Hearing some yeses? It's time to test them out. Third is grooving with a healthy rhythm of yeses and s, where tes and silences, beats and spaces, produce beautiful music and where we move with the heartbeat of life. The final section lays out how kwing when to say yes leads to a successful and beautiful life.
