As you may or may not know, my motto is Excuses Don’t Count unless you’re dead.
Now I know this sounds harsh but excuses are just that – excuses. They don’t serve anyone and it doesn’t matter what your excuses are. You either did or didn’t do something – just that plain and simple. I love to read Prevention Magazine. Like many busy people, I pile up my monthly magazines and read them when I travel. I happened to be recently traveling to Peru so I took all my Prevention Magazines I had been piling up with me. In the July 2008 issue, there was a great short article under Who We Admire. There are five ladies in a photo who all have t-shirts on with a circle and a line crossing through the word Excuses – basically meaning No Excuses. I love it! The article is about five ladies who just celebrated their 30th year of walking together. They walk every single day at 6:30am, rain or shine, and have logged an estimated 25,000 miles. What an inspirational story and we should admire these five ladies. No Excuses!
