We Need to Support People That Quit Stuff

Justin Jackson on the importance of quitting stuff.

For most people, It will take multiple attempts to find something that works. If you keep doing what's not working, how will you ever find what does work?

I think another key idea to remember is that whatever you’re doing now was a commitment you made at a different time in your life. I made the commitment to be on the board of a local school 6 years ago. Before I had 3 kids. Before my wife worked and I had to be done work every day at 3pm.

Before the car was in use every night of the week.

If I was asked to make the same commitment now I would say no because it wouldn’t fit with my life.

That begs the question, why would I continue with the commitment now given that I wouldn’t take it.
