Creating Successful Leaders

What does “no excuses” mean to you? To me, its meaning is twofold:

  1. Actively planning ahead and not stretching yourself too thin (or taking on responsibilities that you know you can’t do) so that you probably won’t have to cover your tracks and make excuses for poor performance AND
  2. Taking ownership of the mistakes you’ve made instead of waffling or coming up with justifications

In my book, The Ten-Minute Leadership Challenge, I talk in-depth about how to prevent excuse-making and how to deal with set-backs. The video below is a supplement to the information in my book. How do YOU fight the urge to make excuses?
