I don't

Fascinating read on a scientific guide to saying "no".  This certainly isn't a new topic (see here and here) but it's interesting what effect verbiage can have on your mind and actions:

“I can’t” and “I don’t” are words that seem similar and we often interchange them for one another, but psychologically they can provide very different feedback and, ultimately, result in very different actions...  To put it simply: you can either be the victim of your words or the architect of them. 

Worth a read.  Or not, you can say 'I don't do this' and read this later  :)
