Having The Courage To Quit - Episode 008

We often think of quitting as a failure, but we see quitting as a necessary process of finding happiness.

In this conversation, we break down some examples of how quitting has helped us to live with intentionality. We have certainly had our fair share of quitting jobs and changing careers as well as so many other commitments like sport and friendships. But at that time, we have asked ourselves many questions to determine why we should stay or quit in that commitment. 

For us, it’s scarier to stay in the certainty of something that we are not happy with than to quit and venture the unknown.

We need to re-think our opinion of quitting. Admitting and learning from mistakes can be far more valuable than persistence and perseverance.” Paul Jarvis

  1. Hey Michael and Masa, thanks so much for the podcast. I too have been a serial quitter, mostly in the work space over a long journey (Michael – we didn’t get to have that conversation). It has always been the totally right thing for me to do. I recently did some quitting in a more personal space and this has been much tougher. So your podcast was just what I needed to remind me how good I’ve been at quitting and affirming that I can use that same approach in other aspects of my life. Your work is very inspiring.

    1. Hi Jenny! It’s so lovely to hear from you 🙂 Wow, I never realised that was the case—there you go! I’m also glad that this episode was reaffirming for what you’re going through. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. Maša and I really appreciate it.
