This is interesting. It is hard for me to distinguish whether it is a reasonable solution when I shift a task to lower on my priorities to accomplish something else which is important also ..or if it is an excuse when I do not complete the task that was moved.
I need to do a better job tracking this so I complete all of the tasks I set for myself.

I do this too sometimes! I’ll prioritize other things above the task which makes it harder to tell if it was an excuse not to do it or if something else really has higher priority.

I said I’m going to loss 10lbs and still haven’t done it. My excuse to myself is I’m so busy I don’t have time to meal prep or or exercise. I’m just being lazy right now and don’t want/feel like putting in the work. I find other things as distractions so I don’t have to do what needs to be done. I find myself doing this every time I don’t feel like doing something.

6 years ago I read a book called “No Excuses” by Brian Tracy. Changed my perspective on owning responsibility of my outcomes. So i adopted a perspective of “I’m 100% responsible for the success or failure of my goals and don’t make excuses.”

I have made excuses for things that are important to me. I’m trying to stop making them and I’ve learned once you start the thing that you have been dreading it is really not that bad.

Everyone has a story and you can always think up really valid reasons why you haven’t accomplished everything you’ve set out to do – but at the end of the day, we all have choices and therefore are accountable for our actions. Victim mentality doesn’t work for successful people!

I agree with others, we’ve all made excuses. What I need to work on is priority management and not shifting priorities based on how I am feeling.

Yes, I have made excuses before. Plenty of them. Lately I just ask myself the question, “would I regret not doing this?”

Yes I have definitely made excuses and they hold me back and keep me in my comfort zone. I think sometimes it comes from asking “what if’s” and getting anxious about what could happen if I go out of comfort zone. Sometimes when that happens I try to “out-crazy” my brain, which is to make up absurd scenarios to make the ones I’m actually worried about seem ridiculous too.

I feel as if I have made excuses. It is difficult to get out of your comfort zone- especially the older you get, when you marry and start a family. You change your priorities and say that instead of saying I’ve made excuses.

I got tied up and didn’t really prioritize and block schedule last week as best as I should. This resulted in me not completing important task (including the 1% tribe) that I usually have a better handle on. I have to get back to the basics (block scheduling, prioritizing, etc) that will get me back on track.

I have made the same excuses for along time. The excuses have caused and cost me much anxiety. It is time for me to embrace the support of this tribe and refuse to settle for another excuse.
