Stop Making Excuses

Every once in a while I see a need to write a more motivational post. We all need some motivation on occasion to get us going. This can happen when we get caught up in every day life and all of the things that can come up. We all have things that we want to do and are not doing them and we end up making excuses on why we are not doing what we need to do. This has been the case for me several times. There are several reasons we are not working towards our goal, and excuses we can make. Here are a few of them and what we should do when we make the excuses.

  1. I don't have time. This is a major excuse that I had used for a lot of things. I have had times in my life where I was busier and the excuse was more viable, still most of the time not having time is an excuse. This is basically the core of the this blog and what Time is Me is about. We all have the same amount of time in a day that everyone else has.

  2. I don't know what to do. Starting something new and reaching a goal can be difficult. However, even when we don't know what to do, you can research on the Internet, ask someone, read a book on the topic, etc.

  3. I don't know where to start or what to do next. The best remedy for this is to make a plan and follow it step by step. Flexibility is important still, but with a solid plan in place you at least have a guide to follow while continuing to the next step.

  4. I don't think it is going to happen so why bother. There are things that seem impossible that see they will never happen. Even if you try at something and fail, it is better that you tried than if you haven't tried at all.

Here is some motivation for the beginning of the summer. This is a good reminder for all of us, as we can all end up making some kind of excuse at times so this serves as a good reminder.
