This is a postscript to an article I wrote for Inman News this week which talked about all of the excuses we tend to make for not working harder in a tougher market. Well, it was sort of about that.

We really don’t have any good excuses, do we?

    The problem is that we have too many good excuses – Its when you work through them as you suggest that we achieve our goals

    I have a great excuse. I want to work smarter, not harder. 🙂

    No kidding…you may like the article I posted this week about a man from my town with no legs, one arm, and he and his family just bicycled from Gig Harbor, WA, to NYC. Amazing!
