Interesting insight: strategic quitting

"A quitter never wins and a winner never quits." Is it really?

I came across this insight of Stephen Dubner, one of the authors of Freakonomics (a really good read, by the way).

Dubner explains the virtues of quitting to Tess Vigeland, making the case that people don’t quit enough

I would like to do strategic quitting but I am not bold enough. Maybe I do early retirement some day. I will be so happy then. Reply to this
