I Resolve:

Not to flippantly toss off "Sure, no problem!", when it, in fact, is a problem. And not just a problem, but a HUGE PAIN IN MY ASS.

YES. Don't lie to yourself and add more stress. If it's a problem, say so (obviously in an appropriate manner). I have found this hugely helpful with my own stress levels at work. I'm much more honest about what I can and cannot take on at that point. I have had good luck with it - it does not always get me out of doing whatever, but it often gives me help or an extended deadline so I do not want to kill someone quite so often.
