After the soul searching settles, the due diligence has been completed, and the final decision has been made, some folks quietly close the door, believing that quitting is an easier, smarter way out of a challenging situation. Of course they’re right! It’s much easier! And often, letting go and getting out is the most intelligent thing to do!
However, when faced with similar challenging circumstances, others choose to change-up the protocol. They rewrite, reinvent, reimagine, and recreate an all new and improved version of themselves and their work, in order to stay in the game and remain relevant.
Important because (unfortunately) it doesn’t matter that much to us if you stay or go, because we have so many choices today. What matters is how many people will be affected by your decision to quit, or how many people will benefit because you choose to soldier on. It’s not always entirely about you.
