We all have a good excuse. In fact, a good excuse is a powerful social lubricant that allows us to work in close proximity. A good excuse can represent some initial problem solving. But that is it. A good excuse adds nothing else. And a good excuse definitely does not erase the grievance.
Skeptical? Let’s do the math.
Late to Work = Late to Work
Late to Work + A Good Excuse = Late to Work
A Missed Deadline = A Missed Deadline
A Missed Deadline + A Good Excuse = A Missed Deadline
Bad Instructional Practices = Bad Instructional Practices
Bad Instructional Practices + A Good Excuse = Bad Instructional Practices
Don’t be distracted by the excuse. Address and correct the behavior/practice.
Think. Work. Achieve.
