The excuse trap

 Many things can affect our mood. Including the cold winter weather.

Unfortunately, the professionals can't afford to fall into the excuse trap. Because once you start, it's all done into the rabbit hole.

The weather is bad; I feel tired, I can do this tomorrow.

It's all excuses and you might have the best excuse in the world which worked when you are in highschool, but when you grow up, no one will give you points for your excuses.

If you want to see proof, look no further than tennis players. They need to play no matter the circumstances, because at the end of the year they will be judged not because of the good excuses, but by the rank they took during the year.

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

New year preparations
