"I will not take but for an answer." Langston Hughes

I would have got the job done but...
I could have made some real progress but...
I would have completed the project but...

... I wasn't given a chance.
... I didn't have enough time.
... Things didn't go my way.

I was ready to get going but...
I was about to get started but...
I was almost there but...

... The timing wasn't right.
... Some problems got in my way.
... I ran into some difficulties.

But, but, but, but, but. If any of this sounds familiar, here's a suggestion: but needs to butt out - no if, ands and butts about it.

He who cannot dance claims the floor is uneven. Proverb

But you don't understand. It's not my fault. I wasn't given a chance. Things got in my way. But, but, but...

Oh I understand all right. I understand big time. I've given the excuses; given them by the truckload. I have thrown buts around like Frisbees in the park. And I now know what the gazillion excuses and buts did for me. NOTHING. Except prevent me from getting anywhere worth going.

So I made the decision to make every effort to not make excuses. Oh sure, I slip up now and then. And sometimes I catch myself right in the middle of an excuse. But by and large, I have given excuse making the boot. And the results have been rewarding.

I hope you do the same.

"Ninety-nine percent of all failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses." George Washington Carver

But is the death knell to success. And the reason is simple. When you say BUT, you let yourself off the hook. You give yourself a way out. And you leave the backdoor open; open to a plethora of tired, worn out, worthless excuses. Excuses that hold you back, excuses that hold you down; excuses that stop you dead in your tracks.

When you make excuses, what are you doing? What are you accomplishing? Where are you going? Are you looking for answers? Are you solving the problem? Are you moving in the direction of your dreams and aspirations? Or are you treading water? Or even moving backwards?

Come on, you know the real answer to the problems you encounter. And that answer is to STOP making excuses - and start making some real progress.

"He who excuses himself accuses himself." Gabriel Meurier

Want better results?
Want to build a rewarding career?
Want a happier life?

Then step up. Step away from the excuses. And start accepting responsibility - for where you are and where you are headed. Take control of your life. And stop taking but for an answer.

When you make a mistake (who doesn't?), accept it for what it is. It's just a mistake. So what? Mistakes happen. The cookie crumbles. The ball bounces the wrong way on occasion. Don't try to explain the mistake away. Don't complain about the bad break you got. Figure out where you went wrong. What you can do better. Make the needed adjustments. Then get back in the game... bigger, stronger and better than ever

Start doing. Start having. Start living. Start enjoying life. No more almost, no more not quite. You need to step away from the excuses and step into the life you desire... without one 'but' in sight.

Power Plan: Tell but to butt out and get something done today.
