Get Rid of Excuses. (c)1999 Roger von Oech.When the Spanish explorer Cortez landed at Veracruz, the first thing he did was burn his ships. Then he told his men: "You can either fight or you can die." Burning his ships removed a third alternative: giving up and returning to Spain. Sometimes it takes more creativity to get rid of excuses than it does to come up with the idea. What three factors will make it difficult to reach your objective? How can you get rid of these excuses? What's the biggest excuse holding you back?
