Excuses

You either get it done or you don’t.

People that are really good at crafting excuses are rarely good at anything else. They’ve prioritized the art of excuse making over the skill and integrity of actually getting it done.

We all offer excuses for the things that we meant to do, but never really committed ourselves to actually doing. Think twice before you commit to another that you will do something.

Do what you say you will do. If you are uncertain, then don’t promise something that you will not deliver. If you are contemplating plausible excuses as you consider your decision, you’re likely not going to be committed. Better to say no than to promise another and then let them down again with only well-crafted excuses.

Your best excuses will generally help only you to feel better. Save Them

“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses – only results. — Ken Blanchard —
