We all know we’re supposed to get up one time more than we fall.
Never … never … never … never … never give up.
You’ve heard it all before … but are you sure you’re not a quitter?
What does it mean to quit?
Quitting doesn’t always mean stopping or ending what you’re doing. It could also mean “settling” for a less ambitious goal or a less favorable outcome.
Are you dead certain that your current objective is unattainable and your decision is perfectly rational? Or, is it possible … subconsciously perhaps … that you adjusted your goal simply to make it more achievable?
If you’ve ever knowingly reduced your annual goals so would qualify for your bonus, you know what I mean.
Michelangelo said it best
I’m not a quitting. I’m just making a course correction.If you have … we’ll say it kindly … reduced your expectations … you can take some comfort in the decades-old GE byline I frequently summon myself …
Does that mean quitting … is acceptable … or is it okay to simply call it progress? You’ll have to decide for yourself … but be mindful that every time you reduce the scope of your goals, it may be a sound decision … or you may be quitting on yourself.
