Reason or Excuse?

Greetings everyone and I’m Christian Robicheau at the Sterling Creations desk welcoming you to the final week of February.
It has been a month of mixed weather but hopefully we’ll be seeing better weather for March.
Today, I am pleased to share our president’s editorial with you and for this week Donna J. Jodhan talks about reasons and excuses!

Enjoy your weekend.


Reason or excuse?
By Donna J. Jodhan

Too often we tend to use the excuse rather than the reason. What I mean is this.

Each time we use an excuse as to why we are unable to either complete or commit to something it means that we are depriving ourselves of offering a reason as to why we can complete or commit. I am of the firm belief that too many of us find it easier to offer an excuse as opposed to offering a reason.

For me, an excuse is the easy way out and it simply makes us look unprofessional and weak. On the other hand, the reason makes us look strong and ready to work.

True it is that in some very unexpected circumstances, an excuse is the way to go; an emergency or an unexpected matter but on the whole I respectfully submit that we need to think more of leaving the excuse behind and replacing it with a reason.

In short; an excuse is simply a way to withdraw and a reason is a way to move forward.
Just my two cents for today.
