Make a Better Life For Yourself – No More Excuses

September 1, 2008

January and September are the two biggest months for making resolutions.  After the Labor Day holiday everyone realizes they’ve been working too little and enjoying themselves too much during the summer months.

It’s back to work, back to business, and we all have a list of things to get done.  What’s on your list of things to accomplish this fall?  Let me guess, there are a few things on your list that may have been there for months, maybe years. 

I have several goals I’ve been working on fruitlessly for many months and I recently realized why I wasn’t achieving them.  I’ve been making excuses that have held me back from pursuing my goals!

The good news is, I’m through with these excuses.  In the audio below I share how making excuses has held me back and how I’m going to get past these roadblocks in my life. Click on the play button to listen (RSS and email readers may have to visit the site to listen).

    For those of us without speaker chips in our work computers…and no internet at home – it would be great if you could bullet point those ways to overcome the excuses… I for one could really use some help with procrastination. I am getting tired of living in a construction zone, and need a boost 🙂 Thanks!
