We all make excuses now and then for things we really don’t want to do. Is it a form of procrastination? You bet. Yep, we look at it as our given right to not do those things we don’t want to.
We need to realize that most of the things we excuse ourselves from are the things that we need to do to make our lives better. Also, the things we try to ditch must be done sooner or later anyway.
When we prolong actions from being completed, they don’t go away. These undone actions tend to hang around and do whatever they can to pester us or even cost us. We might as well go ahead and take care of them upfront.
What do you have that has been pestering you lately?

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future.
Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
