Winners are quitters

I saw this quote in a Fast Company article last week:

"Think high performers are the 'quitters never win' types? Wrong, says (Paul Rulkens." (He is the author of The Power of Preeminence.) And, he goes on to say:

 "Winners quit all the time - they're just more thoughtful about it.

Strategic quitting means ditching the things that you shouldn't or don't want to be doing because they aren't worth your time..."

So, I say to you...

Be a strategic quitter. It doesn't make you a loser or a failure. It make you a winner. Now, I'm not talking about throwing in the towel or giving up when things get tough. That would be capitulation based on weakness. Strategic quitting is different. Strategic quitting is based on strength. It is proactive.

Strategic quitting means you know when it is time to leave work you hate so that you can do work you enjoy.

Remember, winners are quitters. They know when it is time to cut bait and move on. Embrace it. It's the first step to creating work you love.
