Ryan has a strong love and hate relationship with the phrase “No Excuses.” He strongly believes that most people have a difficult time complying with this mantra. Human beings are naturally selfish and sometimes need to excuse themselves because of shifting priorities in life. Some people (including my co-hosts) may disagree with me but I’m always striving to improve so let’s dive into it:
Where Does “No Excuses” Fall In Respect to Interpersonal Relationships? Outline
- What is your definition of an excuse?
- Is there a legitimate excuse? Why or why not?
- Have you ever made an excuse in your life?
- Are there people who are an exception to this rule? Why or why not?
- Successful people often abide by this mantra. Do you know anyone who embraces this mantra?
- Management often specify that some employees use excuses to downplay poor performance. Why is Management not held accountable to the same criticism?
- Would excuses exist if there were no fear of failure? Why or why not?
- Do you feel there’s an expectation of perfection when following this mantra? Why or why not?
- Sometimes we make excuses for other people because we want to save face for certain people, why do you think people do this?
- Are people who do not follow this mantra considered less reliable or less valued as a human being? Why or why not?
- Where do we draw the line with this ‘no excuses’ mantra? In reference to article about the Charter School that didn’t allow students to go to the bathroom during practice tests?
