E is for Excuses #atozchallenge

A Procrastinator’s Guide From A to Z

“Two wrongs don’t make a right, but they make a good excuse.”

E is for Excuses.

I’m sure the road to Hell, or to any other small town in Michigan, is paved with both good intentions and bad excuses.

I didn’t get this, that, or the other thing completed because…the cat ate my laptop?  There are skunks under my house?  (Again.)  My soul got sucked into the fluorescent lighting…but I’m fine, now?  That DVD from 1997 was calling my name and I just HAD to watch it, immediately?

Lame, lame, LAME!  I know.  I get it.  Sometimes, I think it would be nice to have a legitimate reason for not accomplishing my goals.  If I’m honest with myself, I’d say the math behind the failure is: 20% real world problems, 80% excuses.  Every step in the right direction brings me closer to my goals, but when I fail to step at all…excuses fly and I’m back on Pity Party Lane—much like Wisteria Lane, minus Teri Hatcher falling in the bushes.

If I only write ONE sentence, I’m one sentence closer to my writing goals.  If I do NOTHING, I’m exactly where I was before.  Plus one day older.  Eventually, I’m going to run out of days.  That part’s inevitable.  How I spend my days is largely up to me!

  1. I’m my own worst critic (Thank you childhood filled with conditional love!). I’d have to say that along with being honest about making excuses it’s important to forgive yourself and move on. Great post! xo
