  • When is Quitting Okay?

    In business, when is Quitting okay?I was brought up in business with the belief that “winners never quit and quitters never win.” For years this expression haunted me and I firmly resolved that I would never quit anything no matter what it was because I was a winner. It became such an obsession to me to be true to my decision to stay the course that I found myself living a life that I wasn’t passionate about anymore and instinctively knew that it was time to move one but never did anything about it.

    Have you ever felt like that? You’re stuck in a role that you used to love but don’t anymore but yet you’re sticking with it only because you don’t want to be viewed as a quitter? I’m not talking about being flakey – someone who quits anything and never really tries to succeed at anything – but am talking about someone who has put their all into their business and still feels led to move in another direction but fights making the change. Your heart breaks when you think about leaving behind years of work but deep down you know that the time has come and a new chapter of your life is ready to begin.

    I want to let you know that it is ok to quit sometimes. There is no benefit to trying to be a hero and persevere at something you’re no longer passionate about. People change, your interests change, your priorities change and to expect your goals to not change as well is impossible.
