Do you want to know why?
Because I used to make them myself.
Whenever there was something that I didn’t want to do, I’d try to come up with some excuse to not do it. Whenever there was some job that needed to get done, sometimes I thought more about why I shouldn’t have to do it than putting my mind to the task of actually getting the task done.
You know what I’ve learned?
Excuses are lame (especially when I am the one making them). They make you seem like you haven’t really been trying in the first place.
I’ve been trying to get something fixed, and all I keep hearing are reasons why it can’t be fixed or how hard it is going to be. Just get it done, or at least put a good faith effort into trying to fix it. I guess part of my frustration in this particular instance is that I have to trust that they are putting a good effort into fixing the issue.
But back to the matter at hand. Stop making excuses and do something. If it doesn’t work or gets you nowhere, do something else to put you on the right path.
