Good reasons for poor performance translate into bad excuses.
Being quarantined and kept from my friends have made everything difficult and no fun.
I don't have to get up early for online classes.
Online classes are boring...teachers aren't motivated.
My school's online studies are disorganized.
I can't learn this way...my teachers are not teaching.
My child doesn't test well...not good under time pressure.
SAT's were cancelled then...my child's not ready now.
Have you heard these comments? I hear them... all reasons why someone underperformed.
Don't take it personal, but in my life, they may be good reasons but they serve as bad excuses.
I rarely hear people say- I did poorly, it's my fault. I need to do better.
That's what I want to hear people say...the world is not so forgiving otherwise.
