The culture of excuses

One of the big projects I’m taking on this year is commencing the Kojonup Sporting Alliance, a body aimed at having a positive impact on the local community through sport and recreation.


I’ve noticed how when we encounter change like trying to implement such a project, we tend to pick out the negatives, then draw on excuses as to why the problems exist.


Time and time again this gets repeated, and we call that ‘culture’.


If you’re part of a culture of making excuses, change that culture.
