This is the question posed to us in a very interesting book called Quit, by Annie Duke.
We’ve been told since forever, that we just shouldn’t give up. Perseverance is the key to success. Quitting is for losers. If you give up, the world has no place for you. And on and on, there’s so many of these messages and quotes and what not – we’ve all been at the receiving end of many of such.
But Annie is one of the best poker players in the world, and she knows a thing or two about quitting. If you’ve played poker, you know that no matter how much luck you have on your side, you can’t keep winning every single game.
She summarizes beautifully:
Success does not lie in sticking to things. It lies in picking the right thing to stick to and quitting the rest.
But where does spirituality fit in to this? Find out here tomorrow!
Nice topic Mahesh. Will wait for part 2. But as Bhagavatam says, we should learn the art of leaving / quitting
