Can we have a life without excuses? At least attempt to?Yesterday an important task couldn't be completed for no fault of me but people gave me excuses from the other side, prompting me to post the thread. Every day we are in a position to give excuses or listen to excuses.
It's the maid who's late, our office boy, the driver, the deliveryman or we ourselves unable to attend a function or not being able to reach in time, skipping a meeting.
The reasons for these excuses at times are genuine but often it's a list of excuses made up to cover our real intentions and motives.
The implications can just be a minor irritation to a job not done or an avoidable waste of time and resources. Are excuses a necessity of life or do we tend to overuse it?
