This is a statement you will rarely, If not never, hear at a startup.

And this statement forms the basis of most conversations in a large company.

I have come to realize – the reason large companies are so slow to move is because they tolerate the existence of excuses.
Excuses for not being able to deliver
Excuses for inaction
Excuses for not taking charge
Excuses for not deciding then and there!

Whosoever you are – no matter how big or small – don’t ever create an environment where excuses are easy to discover. Only then will you have a “let me get back to you on this” free world!
