Please Don’t Take Away My Excuses – part 1 I’ll Lose Choices

March 6th, 2017 · No Comments

by Dwayne Phillips

Excuses are great. One of the best is “I have so much to do” as it gives me choice as to what I will do today.

I have ten jobs I do. If I don’t want to do #3 today, I have an excuse as I am really busy with the other ones.

Please don’t hire someone to do #3. That will remove one of my choices, and it will leave me with fewer excuses of why I can’t do what you want me to do (instead of what I want to do).

Hmm, being overworked is a good thing. At least it is good for me. Perhaps it isn’t so good for everyone else.
