The idiosyncrasy of “Quitting”

Suggestions & improvement are welcome-

A few things in our world are misrepresented. For ex- Football( kidding). When we move ahead towards something modern, at that point obstacles in most cases are related to OUR course in individual and we’re told that NO MATTER WHAT, wrap up what you started. So, you must be pondering what’s something modern? We have as of now been tuning in to this since 3rd grade.
But, is it okay to think this way?
Did any of your teacher, mentor, or wellwisher tell you that, sometimes quitting a tedious task is worth saving your time than to spend days or years while being confused about it till the end?
Guess not.


Spend some time around friends & Social network and you’ll realize that you’re inside the ethos of “quitting is for losers”, “quitting is not an option” & uhh “never quit till your last breath ” etc, etc.
It’s totally baleful & absurd!


Courage, persistence, and hard work are certainly important in executing our goals. But frequently our best work, the work that matters, disrupts, challenges and indicates that a failure IS an option. It happens when we know “this might not work” and we choose to do it anyway.
However, the closest companion of a deliberate decision to put it all on the line and face a challenge is realizing when it’s an ideal opportunity to stop. The fact of the matter isn’t to stay away from disappointment no matter what, the fact is to fail good(closest to win). It implies realizing when to quit pushing too huge of weight up to a big – big slope. It’s an extreme acknowledgment of the real world. It implies being helpless against the possibility that despite our earnest attempts, we essentially need to stop.

To explain, Godin quotes ultramarathoner Dick Collins: “Decide before the race the conditions that will cause you to decide to stop and drop out. You don’t want to be out there saying, ‘Well, gee, my leg hurts, I’m a little dehydrated, I’m sleepy, I’m tired, and it’s cold, and it’s windy…’ and talk yourself into quitting.”

If you’re making a decision based on how you’re feeling at that moment, then you will probably make the wrong decision.


You quit when you know you’ve invested more than you’ll get out of it. You need clear, measurable metrics to know when to give up on your big idea or startup.


In a nutshell, Allow yourself to state, “No, it isn’t justified, despite any potential benefits.” And give yourself consent before you start.

Note— ‘Quitting’ in any way is not mentioning suicide within this blog.

Thank you.
