Excuses, excuses

I don't usually re-post other people's stuff, but I thought this was good for the New Year.

Here is the post from

What’s Your Excuse for Not Achieving
Your Goals?

And here are a few highlights:

Leo Tolstoy wrote War and Peace while living in a small house with his wife and 13 children.

e.e. cumming’s first book of poetry was rejected by fifteen publishers. He self-published it, dedicated it to the fifteen rejectors, and became one of America’s greatest poets.

Abraham Lincoln lost multiple jobs, went bankrupt, and failed in numerous bids for public office before being sworn in as the 16th President of the United States.
