EPISODE 04: EXCUSES

COPYRIGHT JOSTENS 2020 – We all make excuses for not doing things. Sometimes we have valid reasons, but often times, we make excuses like we “don’t have enough time” because we’re afraid of failure or judgement. In this episode of The Harbor by Jostens, Mike challenges us to spend more time thinking about the things that matter to us — and to really question why we make the excuses we do.
