What's Your Excuse

Jilda saw a blurb from the Paralympics recently and the title was "What's Your Excuse".  I have to admit, that struck a little close to home.
What's your excuse? I have a list of things a mile long that I should do to do to advance my career. The list hasn't changed much over the past year (well maybe it got a little longer). What's my excuse?
Sadly, I don't have one. I could whine about this and that, but in the end, I think it boils down to sometimes spend major time on minor things.
How do you combat the laws of diminishing intent? You're fired up and the longer it takes you to get started on a project, the less likely it is you will finish it.
The Paralympics start next week. I interview a cyclist who is competing in several of the events. She's had several traumatic brain injuries, and she was diagnosed with MS. But she's the fastest woman in the south on a bicycle. I can't wait to see how she does.
I set my clock a little early in the morning to work on a project that means a great deal to me. I want it to get underway before it falls prey to the law of diminishing intent.


  1. Great post- full of truth!

  2. My excuse is that I'm always tired. Works for me! lol

  3. I do feel ashamed when I have all my faculties (don't listen to what Jack may say!) and I fail to use them. I often think that I also have no excuses to ever have a bad day. Except I'm human and perfection hasn't happened yet..I'm glad to know I'm not alone..but that still doesn't make it any better does it.
