“It’s Sunday, I can’t go for customer support.”
“I don’t think we are ready to ship our product.”
“Oh the client device doesn’t have enough CPU power.”
“Oh the internet is slow.”
“My startup can’t grow big because we don’t have investment.”
“We can’t recruit great team members because we are just a small startup.”
How many times have we heard of these?
Excuses are great when you don’t want to do anything. Excuses are awesome when you don’t want to achieve something.
Infact, when you think you are not ready, that’s the moment you need to get out there. That’s when you need to ship or grow or recruit or bake those cookies. Get out of your comfort zone.
Instead of not delivering thinking you are not ready, how about delivering and even failing? Failures provide you with a great opportunity.
You don’t win because you did a good job, you win because you so dramatically exceeded expectations, you made an awesome comeback from your failure.
Everyone can do a good job, try doing an excellent one.
That’s when people notice you. That’s when you shine. That’s when you become a hero.
