Yes or No, What is Right
Each and everyone of us, wish from core of our heart to please everyone and say yes to all. But all of us, we have limited time and life. So this is an art to say 'yes' or 'no'. When friends are going to play or going to watch movie, we will say 'yes'. Perhaps we have not learned to say 'no'. Sometimes it is more valuable to say 'no' instead of saying 'yes' to all and all the time. Learn the skill to say 'no', without hurt the feeling of others. Don't sacrifice your passion, profession and dedication to your priorities. You can use a counter word 'BUT' instead of 'NO' [Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP); an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy]. But someone is coming to my home or I'm in a meeting. 'But' cancels out the whole previous scenario. Next week may be I would have time. I can't do but I can help you, how is it possible. Employer calls a candidate; we apologize, this time we are not able to get you on board. But good news is that we will keep you posted for next opportunity. We have shared your resume with our other branches. Refused and motivated at the same time. 
Make your schedule and take care of your priorities. Respect to your own then others will respect you. When you think in this way then you have many easy and simple solutions to complicated issues. Fun has some value in life but more important is your responsibilities. Taking care of your responsibilities would enhance your respect. Develop an attitude to say 'yes' or 'no'. Don't follow the past precedents. Mind your priorities. Steve Jobs got numerous ideas on the way to develop 'Apple' but he needed to accept only valuable ideas out of those. Otherwise you cannot focus on one idea. He used 'no' very abundantly and intelligently.
The 'great majority' is 'very generous' and provides 'consultancy' free of charge on 'voluntary basis'; even time to time organize some promotional get-together programs to get approval that their 'consultancy business' is legitimate. They 'in the disguise of friendship' knowingly or unknowingly tempt you to involve in vain activities (in the name of social etiquette). They are very active to imbue (introduce) these horrible behaviors and doing in the name of 'moral duty'. Getting beware of behind the curtain would help you to say 'no' to dismissive, thoughtless engagements.
Keep your priorities at the top until and unless there is some real need of your participation.
"Like it or not, the world evolves, priorities change and so do you."

'Your choices and decisions are a reflection of how well you've set and followed your priorities.'

In all planning you make a list and you set priorities.

'Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.'
“It's not about having enough time, it's about making enough time.”
"The key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities."
Nobody is busy in this world it is all about priorities.
Getting to the top should be a priority, but being aware of the reason for getting there should be the focus.
“Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.”
