Lean Quote: Leave Your Excuses At The Door

On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.

"I do not believe in excuses. I believe in hard work as the prime solvent of life's problems.— James Cash Penney

Many businesses will face immense challenges on the road to success. They will also be presented with opportunities to overcome these challenges. Don’t squander your potential with self-imposed limitations. Don’t make excuses for why you cannot capitalize on your opportunities.

The story of NASCAR's Richie Parker asks you to leave your excuses at the door.

“I can’t say that there’s things I can’t do. Just things that I haven’t done yet.” Richie Parker is an automotive engineer at NASCAR racing team Hendrick Motorsports

On your transformational journey there will undoubtedly be challenges but learn for Richie Parker to leave excuses at the door. This inspirational video should be a lesson to us all that we can overcome much more difficult challenges if we set our mind to it.
