This Tuesday, January 14, is “National Fire Your Excuses Day." Celebrate the start of an excuse-free year.

Don’t try harder in 2014. Get more connected!

This Tuesday, January 14, 2014 is “National Fire Your Excuses Day.”    Will you join us for “a day without excuses?”

How to celebrate National Fire Your Excuses Day

Honor your resolve to live “excuse-free” in 2014 by taking one or more of the actions below this

1. Plan…set your written 2014 goals.
2. Connect…join one group that will help you succeed.
3. Move…no after-hours electronics before exercise.
4. Learn…what skill is separating you from your dream?
5. Serve…contact one person or group who needs your support.

Key Principles to Remember This Year:

  •     Refuse to minimize. "Not all excuses are the same, some hinder us, some hurt us, and some kill us." At the very least, excuses rob us of our dreams, impact and purpose.
  •     "Don't try harder in 2014. Get more connected!" Do you have important goals that have eluded you for years? It's time to admit that willpower is needed, but it is not enough.
  •     "Everything changes when we walk the last mile of denial." What is your "last mile?" What two or three actions have you been unwilling to take until now?

About Fire Your Excuses

Fire Your Excuses is a new book on permanent personal change by Dr. Bill Dyment and Dr. Marcus Dayhoff, Orange County counselors and speakers. Their strategies are based on 60 years of combined clinical experience and research, 2,500 audiences, and 450 organizations. These authors remind us “the cavalry is not coming.” Our own health and financial recovery, to cite just two common excuse areas, must begin with us. Fact: Americans saved just 1.2% of their income before the recession, down from 11.2% in 1984. And, with at least one out of four Americans now obese, we are also facing an unprecedented national health crisis.

Their book and free online assessment addresses our eight most common life excuse areas:

1.    Blind Spots and Weaknesses
2.    Health and Wellness
3.    Social Connections
4.    Communication
5.    Time Management
6.    Finances
7.    Career
8.    Serving

Dr. Bill Dyment and Dr. Marcus Dayhoff are frequent guests and available for television, radio and podcast interviews. ###
