[Justin Jackson on the importance of quitting stuff](https://justinjackson.ca/moving-on).

> 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
