Do It 2017 #13: Making Excuses

“Stop Making Excuses,” is a phrase we often hear from our parents, our teachers, and even our employers. Making excuses is akin to be called lazy — a slacker — a loser. Making excuses isn’t the problem though. Failing to think deeply about why we are making the excuse is what is really required,

Yes, we all make excuses for a wide variety of reasons, myself included, but the worst part is that there is often a valid reason for the excuse. We might be missing an important skill. We might be missing the basic desire to do something. We might be fearful that we cannot do the task at hand. Typically, it isn’t the excuse that is the true reason we aren’t doing something, but rather something deeper. Something hidden. Something scarier. Something that keeps you awake at night.

As bad as it might seem to others, we often dislike ourselves for making excuses, too. We know we aren’t doing the right thing, but it can be difficult to do the right thing, so we make the excuse so we can move on.

Share what you know. Whether you are sharing it online.You’re sharing it in person. Teach everyone around who wants to learn. If you have someone asking you a question, take that question seriously and answer that question. They came to you asking, looking for an answer and your answer may be imperfect or at least you may think it’s a bit imperfect in some ways, but you guess what? Together you’re going to arrive at a good answer, but never ever slough off a question when it is asked of you, because if that person took the time — took the energy — took the personal fear to ask you a question, they want to know the answer. ANd the fact is, if they want to know that answer, I can guarantee you — times it by 10, times it by 100, times it by 1000 in the era of the Internet — other people out there want to know that same answer.
