Excuses, Excuses

Can you believe the excuses people come up with?  Most everyone has used some excuse or another during their life; it's just human nature to try to explain or justify action or inaction.  People usually recognize when they are being brushed off with a lame excuse, and most would rather hear the simple truth.  

The bottom line, though, is that each of us should take responsibility, own up to mistakes, and commit to doing our part, without excuses.  

“Nobody is impressed with 
how good your excuses are.”  

“He that is good for making excuses 
is seldom good for anything else.” 
--Benjamin Franklin
