“Just Quit When You Have to End.”

But that’s exactly the problem isn’t it?  There is no end.  You strive for perfection and excellence in the hope that one day we’ll find success.  

THE ROAD TO “DONE” IS UGLY, paved with obstacles and hard work.  But you don’t get to the exciting part just by shipping an inferior product and releasing anxiety.  You get to the exciting part by doing the work and enjoying the process.  

There’s never a firm end date.  Your gut will tell you when the time is right to move on or discontinue.   

Sometimes capitulation is a proper success.  Giving up and retiring can have practical benefits such as less-stress and the chance to try something else. 

All quitting is situational.  At some point in your life, you’ll have to make the call to keep shipping or hang it up.  Either way you’ll be right.
