From Farnam Street:

The hard truth is that most things in your life – good and bad – are your fault. The sooner you realize that, the better things will be.

How many people never want to hear that. They want to find some other person, company, thing…to blame so that they remain faultless.

Stop waiting for someone to bail you out and take the time needed to learn the skills you need.
