Bullshit Excuse Form:
Hi! My name is_____________________
I know I had a _________________
Scheduled at _______________ today.
Look I tripped/ fell / jumped off a curb/ bar stool/ horse and twisted my knee over the weekend.
I know I told you I need to lose 30lbs last week, and I’m sure this couldn’t have anything to do with why my knees and back hurt all the time.
I talked to my Doctor/ Orthopedic Surgeon/ Phone Psychic and he advised me not to exercise, change my diet, or lose any weight for my health anytime in the next week/ month/ forever.
No I don’t think I’ll reschedule right now.
I’ll be traveling out of the country/ starting graduate school/ moving out of the state until next month/ year/ forever.
Thank you for listening to my bullshit excuse!

Now. Take a look at that picture at the top of this page.
That’s Gene Rogers. Just 4 weeks ago he said no to bullshit excuses. He showed up. cleaned up his diet, got some much needed exercise.
He said, “I feel better than I have in years!”
He’s lost 18lb so far. He’s kicking ass and taking names. With nearly 4 inches off his waist the only thing he needs now is a new belt.
He could have sent me the bullshit excuse form.
But, he didn’t.
He took action.
And that one decision has made all the difference.
