Easy Excuses

When I sat down to write this post, my site was down.

It was an easy excuse to slack.

I can’t post — my site is down! There was a chorus in my head — Hey, you don’t have to write! You’re off scot-free!

But the crazy thing is that I wanted to write. I was looking forward to it.

Yet, at the slightest opportunity, the resistance in my mind started singing and doing a tap dance at the opportunity to get out of it. Even if it is an easy, lame excuse.

The way I think about it, easy excuses are big opportunities in disguise. It’s a chance to overcome your resistance when the odds and logic are in your favor. In other words, its a pretty easy battle, a confidence builder.

Don’t succumb to the easy excuse. Just do it.

Psst - If you do give in, don’t despair, we’ve all done it. You’re in good company.
