Some folks quit in quiet despair, believing that quitting is an easier way out of a challenging situation. Of course they’re right—it’s much easier. And often “getting out” is the most intelligent thing to do. However, others, when faced with similar challenging circumstances, choose to retreat, scale back, withdrawal, or start over, in order to reinvent, rewrite or re-adjust their course—until they find an alternate route to continue the pursuit of their goal.
Important because (unfortunately) it doesn’t matter that much to us if you stay or go—there are 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.
