Excuses vs. Choosing

Each of us can think of a myriad reasons to put off doing what we know we need to do today. If we expended even half the energy accomplishing those tasks that we first put into excusing ourselves from doing them, we'd be done already. Choose to do a task or choose not to do it. Wasting time and energy making up excuses is the worst possible use of our time and energy. Yoda says, "Do or do not. There is no 'try.'" I say to you: Do or do not. There is no excuse for not choosing consciously. Start making choices about how you spend your day rather than making excuses about how you are not going to spend your day.
