The wisdom of quitting

Persistence and commitment are admirable, but sometimes it’s time to let go. There’s life-changing wisdom in quitting when you know it’s the right thing to do. And even when you don’t.

Jobs, relationships, projects, businesses … you name it and I’ve probably quit it. You could even call me an “expert quitter.”

And one of the most important things I’ve learned is this: quitting needn’t represent a failure or a referendum on your value as a person.

In this episode of the Living Experiment Podcast I talk with my friend Pilar Gerasimo about our biggest life quits (Pilar quit a Fulbright Scholar program in Paris and the Huffington Post) and the lessons we’ve learned.

Have your own stories about quitting?
