The disease of chronic excuse-making

Every moment we spend making excuses is time wasted from doing what actually needs to be done. Excuse-making is one of the top-10 reasons for prolonged losing streaks. Listening to chronic excuse-makers is another top-10 time-waster that sinks us deeper in the mess that caused the excuse. Both are psychological compensation to fill the void of emptiness brought on by the habit of time-wasting misery-sharing. Put a clock on every excuse made or listened to. Add up the time. It becomes a source of deep regret after the realization sinks in that excuse-making won’t snap a losing streak and the time stuck in self-pity cannot be replayed. – from my next book. #workingoutis sacred
