Quitting

Here’s the truth: You’re not going to enjoy what you do everyday. No one does. Anybody that tells you otherwise isn’t stretching themselves. There not producing enough bad ideas (so they can come up with some really good ones). There not going to the edges. There not pushing the boundaries. There playing it safe.

But having some bad days isn’t the real reason you should quit.

Quit for the right reasons. Which is early and often before you start. Quit at the beginning when it’s cheap. Don’t start anything unless you intend on finishing it.

Don’t quit because it’s difficult. Of course, it’s difficult. That’s why the thing you’re doing, is worth doing.

If it was easy—if there was a shorter cut—someone else would have figured it out by now.

Push through. Everything worth doing has a Dip.

[Tip: The time to be looking for another job is not when your tired of the current one you have. The time to look was yesterday. Since you can’t go back, the next best option is now.]
