Excuses


“I’m late for work, because just as I was leaving home, some guests turned up, and I had to stay back till they left.”
“I was set to run the marathon in 4 hours, but got hit by cramps and finished in 5:27.”

Practically everyone seems to have an excuse for everything, even if the excuse is something that could have been predicted easily. There are times when you can almost see the excuses being formed and polished, even before things actually go wrong.
Why can’t people take responsibility for what they are supposed to do, instead of making excuses?

excellent! Responsibility is one of my words for the year -- right behind the word, 'intend'. I intend to take responsibility for my self, this moment, this day.

Thanks for the reminder.
