“I attribute my success to this – I never gave, or took, any excuse.” – Florence Nightingale
Jocko Willink, a well-known former Navy SEAL, speaks to what is known as “Extreme Ownership”. Precisely as the words imply, it’s the action of turning inward at every obstacle.
The terrifying thing about excuses, is that it blinds us to our next move. If we excuse, or justify, we at a subconscious level tell ourselves that this is “out of my control”. That this was a fluke, or a chance event, and there’s nothing I could do differently next time. We can see the danger in that.
On the flip side, “Extreme Ownership” is not about beating ourselves up or for throwing pity parties. It’s purely, so we can train ourselves to open our vision on where to go next. To see the gain. If we don’t allow ourselves to make excuses, we ask the question – “What can I do differently next time?”
Excuses are contagious. As we feel the temptation come today, pause in the moment. Is there anything I could do differently next time?
