It takes less time to do things right than to explain why we did it wrong.
It has been often said that "One who is good at making excuses is seldom good at anything else." Stop taking shortcuts in your life today, and quit rationalizing your failures with excuses. Hold yourself personally accountable for all of your actions. If you do what's right the first time, you'll have more time to do good.
I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak.
