You are never tested and tempted to make excuses

Being on the road reminds me of how important habits are.

You are never tested and tempted to make excuses like you are when you travel – everything about your routine is out of synch.

You’re living in a hotel room.

No kitchen, no car (probably), travel fatigue, weather changes, limited to resources that fit in your travel bag(s), etc.

The interesting thing as i observe people and organizations as a profession is that habits drive everything we do.

We have the power to change habits, but we almost always make excuses for why we can’t change.

To which a brilliant piece of wisdom emerges automatically:

Can’t and won’t are not synonymous.

 

i can’t change.

i won’t change.

Those two are not the same.
