Making Excuses

“Most of the excuses I made…

– not enough time
– not enough money
– not enough knowledge
– not the right connections

…were just ways to avoid the real bottleneck: Not enough courage.

There was always a small step I could have taken—if I had the guts to take it.”
James Clear

I made an excuse earlier in the day, saying that I didn’t have enough time.

Was that true? Or was it that I didn’t have enough courage?

If it had been important, I would have made the time or I would have found a way.

But instead of saying that it wasn’t that important, I made an excuse.
