060 Excuses, Excuses, Excuses

Are you always hearing excuses from others about why they didn’t get something done? Or, are you coming to terms with making excuses yourself for commitments you are making and breaking? In this cast, we discuss the particulars of excuses (and making justifications, and perhaps appropriates “reasons”) for not getting a task or project completed.
