Are we making excuses for ourselves?

I have 2 favorite quotes after watching a Japanese drama. The title is “DOCTORS: 最高の名医“. First is,

“Statistic is just an excuse for doctor to hide from the patient. And saying “it’s usually like that ..” too ” – Sagara Kosuke

Sagara Kosuke is the main character in the drama with some “unique” characters.

I think sometimes we are trying to justify our failure by finding supporting facts which align with our facts. Do you think so?

Hmm.. I think I did in the past. Then usually I’ll have some regrets for not persistently pursuing it.

I learned that it’s not just our effort taken into account there are other things too. However, what’s our attitude towards it is also important. Because I believe, that there are not only one way to get something or to get to somewhere. I learned that I need to be “creative” and keep my mind open when I’m working on something. Don’t give up easily when one way is not working.

So at the end of the day, we won’t say that it’s because of this or that I failed not to get it. Instead will say that I did my best. No excuse, no regret.
