Lately, I’ve been whining a lot. I’ve been making a lot of noise because of many things: personal health, family health, work issues, losing friends, traffic, weather, leaving pickles on my chicken sandwich . . .
I wrote a post a few years ago but due to some spam and possibly a virus attached to it, I had to delete it. However, it is so fitting to my feelings today and my experiences throughout the past year. It was titled:
Excuses – Be sure to check your math
We’ve all been in these situations. Something doesn’t go right or doesn’t go the way we planned. So we go back and analyze. Did we make a mistake in the planning or in the execution? Maybe I’ve been making excuses for things that were in my control.
Mistakes are a part of the growing process. In other words, it could be totally our fault and no excuses can make the mistake go away. It is what it is.
So be sure to check your math.
